Man Stabbed To Death Over Ksh. 400 Debt

Police officers in Bomet have arrested a businessman, Evans Mutai, accused of killing another man over a Ksh.400 debt.

According to a police report seen by Citizen Digital, the suspect stabbed Festus Keter, 35, in the chest and went about his business as nothing had happened.

“The suspect then went on to trade merchandise at his premises unperturbed,” the police report says.

Mr. Keter was stabbed in the right side of his chest outside the suspect’s shop after the

two argued about the Ksh.400 that the suspect was owed, according to witnesses.

His body was discovered by a well-wisher who notified the police

“A concerned villager who stumbled on the body of the deceased, informed detectives

based at Chesoen police station about the incident.” The report adds that

“The officers immediately rushed to the scene 10 kilometres away and conducted preliminary investigations into the murder, after which the suspect was apprehended,”

During the arrest, officers discovered a blood-stained knife, which they believe was the murder weapon and kept it as exhibit.

“Mutai, shall be arraigned in court on Monday to answer to murder charges,” the police said on Sunday.

Meanwhile, the body of the deceased is lying at Longisa hospital mortuary pending a postmortem.
