Kinango sub-county, Kwale has turned out to be a very deadly spot after the mysterious killings of two people in separate incidences.
In one of the incidents, a 60-year-old man from Mukanyeni village was hacked to death over witchcraft accusations, Kinango OCPD Fredrick Ombaka confirmed.
The police identified the deceased as Matari Ngome Mutuku.
It is said Matari had accompanied a relative to solve a farm dispute that had been destroyed by cattle.
On the arrival, one of the complainants Kutoka Chirima overreacted and started slapping Matari alleging that he bewitched his father.
It is then that a Matari’s brother-in-law Membeyu Ngome Mutuku ran for help and returned with the area village elder only to find Matari lying unconscious in a pool of blood.
