A Kakamega has been arrested for allegedly killing his mother during a fight with his brothers.
According to detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) 35 year-old Makomere Shikokongo was arrested by detectives and is currently in police custody.
“A fight between three unreasonable brothers on Wednesday night, turned tragic after one of them killed their mother who had tried to prevail upon them to stop fighting”
The three brothers, Makomere Shikokongo, 35, John Omoro, 25 and Joseph Amakobe, 40, had turned their mother’s compound in Ibokolo, Kakamega county into a battlefield, where they physically went for each other’s throats over an unknown issue.
According to DCI, the mother had tried to intervene when things got out of hand but one of the sons kicked her sending her to the ground.
“When things got out of hand after an exchange of punches and kicks, their concerned mother intervened in a bid to separate them”
The 60-year-old woman later complained of body aches as a result of the attack, before she died in her house.
“…one of her sons who did not take her actions kindly, kicked her sending her on the ground a few metres away and continued facing off with his brothers.”
The sleuths said this happened as their 63-year-old father Paul Shikokongo, was away from home.
