A somber mood has engulfed the residents of Kamasi village in Ndhiwa sub-county after two brothers died following a disagreement over a piece of land which saw Gordon Odhiambo kill his elder stepbrother George Odhiambo before an irate mob turned on him and butchered him.
Gordon allegedly ended George's life after conflict arose on who was the rightful owner of a piece of family land their father left when he died two years ago, with witnessing claiming that Gordon attacked his brother who was helping his aunt plough using an oxen.
It is reported thatt he drove a machete on George's head several times before he fled the crime scene leaving his brother for dead and relocated to one of his relatives in the neighboring county.
His relatives where he had sought refuge send him back to his home after news reached them of the heinous act he had committed and when villagers spotted him, they pursued him forcing him to take to his heels.
The irate mob which was baying for his blood demolished his brother's house after he had climbed on top of it and pounced on by chopping off his legs before they finished him off.
