A 25-year-old man who was part of a love triangle has been killed in Maralal town. Samburu Central OCPD Abagoro Guyo said the man bled to death after he was stabbed.

The suspected killer was arrested by locals and handed over to police as he attempted to flee after the incident Thursday.

 Mr Guyo said the residents, led by Nyumba Kumi officials, cornered the suspect near Ledero. "We have him in custody and he will be arraigned in court once investigations are complete," said Guyo.

Residents said the suspect and the victim were close friends and always drank together. "They fought over a woman the whole night," said Simon Lekaaso, a local resident.
