In Uasin Gishu County, a 30-year-old man died from injuries incurred following a bar brawl with a friend over a job placement dispute.
Kipkoech is reported to have plotted to get Ekai fired from the ChapChap security firm, where he worked as a guard.
Kipkoech is believed to have convinced Ekai that he was plotting his demise in order to replace him in the security agency.
Kipkoech, on the other hand, rejected the charges, and the verbal spat escalated into a full-fledged bar brawl as the two, who were reportedly already inebriated, began assaulting one other with sharp weapons.
Ekai was stabbed in the chest and died as a result of his injuries at Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital, where he was rushed for treatment.
Kipkoech, who had stab wounds as well, was treated at the same hospital and later released before being taken to the Eldoret Police Station and shall be charged with murder.
