A 16-year-old boy is being held at Bomet police station for allegedly stabbing his elder brother to death.

The Standard Eight pupil at a school in Bomet East Constituency is a candidate for this year's Kenya Certificate of Primary Education examination.

Bomet East Sub-County Police Commander James Kilonzo said the boy was allegedly angered by his elder brother's frequent violence against his wife.

"He had gone to visit the brother and found him beating his wife and started questioning him before a quarrel ensued," said Kiplabotwa chief Stanley Towett.

Witnesses said the boy stabbed the victim using a kitchen knife. The administrator said he responded to a distress call and found the father of two bleeding from the stomach.

He died while being taken to Longisa County Referral Hospital. His body lies at the hospital's mortuary.

“Initially when we heard screaming and wailing, we thought it was the deceased and his wife who often engage in feuds and domestic violence,” said Eric Ruto, a neighbour.
