Shock as Kisumu man allegedly murders brother, then buries him in bedroom

Kisumu police are investigating a bizarre incident in which a man hacked his brother to death and buried him in his bedroom two months ago.

According to a report by KTN News, the suspect, Clinton Ochuodho, killed his brother Joseph Ochieng under unclear circumstances before proceeding to don his clothes publicly.

The incident took place at Kagak village in Nyakach Sub-county where the scene has since been cordoned off as police await the government pathologists to exhume the body for postmortem tests.

The victim had been reported missing two months ago before his body was discovered buried inside his brother’s bedroom.

A multi-agency team including an officer from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations, the government pathologist and the government chemist representative is expected at the scene to probe the matter.

In the video, police officers are seen surrounding the house, a mud-walled structure, to keep residents in the area from accessing the property.

Villagers intimated to the broadcasters that they had spotted a suspicious bone.

The witnesses noted that the incident shocked them as the two brothers were orphaned and had been living together ever since.

Cases of domestics violence have reportedly been on the rise since the state ordered a dusk-to-dawn curfew and cessation of movement in Nairobi and the Coast region.

In January, a man, Mwanza Kaloki, was under Machakos police’s radar for hacking his mother and niece to death after allegedly quarreling over a meal of eggs and Ugali.

“They had deep cuts on the head. My daughter was still breathing when I arrived. She was lying in my house’s corridor. I carried her and took her outside the house and laid her in our compound,” stated Kaloki’s brother Alfred Mbithi.

In an earlier address, Health Chief Administration Secretary, Mercy Mwangagi, warned domestic violence perpetrators that the state was turning its gaze on them.

“We want to remind everyone that the law has not been suspended and that it will catch up with those who mete violence on others during this period,” Mwangangi warned.
