On the morning of 12th April at around 9am, a group of hired goons and the late Japhary Abdallahs family members invaded the family of Mr John Mathew Waswa in Nanyeni village, Matungu subcounty.
The goons, armed with pangas, jembes and other weapons destroyed houses, and household goods and even stole some property. The group, which was working under the instructions of one Dr Mohammed Abdallah Munyendo, attacked Samson Waswa and injured him badly. Mr John Waswa, who had gone to vote at Itete was alerted about the issue and when he came home to check what the matter was, the irate group turned on him.
Dr Munyendo instructed them to kill him. He could be heard saying “mwingine ndo huyu,ua yeye,ua yeye” one Lucas Saka Makokha and Doli(Munyendo’s cousin) followed my father and killed him on spot, few metres from out of his compound where he was trying to run so as to save his life.
The body was taken to Bungoma District Hospital awaiting postmortem. Two key culprits have been arrested with others still at large.
We kindly request for quick investigation and arrest of the other criminals.
