Murder

Man killed by his friend accusing him for plotting for his dismissal.

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.

Peter Ekai (30) and Elphas Kipkoech (26) were on a drinking spree at Longisa market centre in Kamagut when an altercation erupted, according to a police report seen by a local station.

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.
