"Mourners thought the mob was joining them in the sendoff, only to go straight to the podium and seized the pastor, cutting short the sermon," says Philip, a witness who had attended the burial. They insisted that he was a wanted man in connection with spate of robberies, where riders had been targeted. They insisted he was part of a gang that had recently robbed one of their colleagues. Philip says hell broke loose almost immediately, with the mob reigning kicks and blows on the man of God. He was forced to sit on a bike and taken to his house in Ojunge village a few kilometres away. They locked him in and set the house ablaze. Kalanya Kanyango Chief, Fredrick Onyango confirmed the incident, warning locals against taking the law in their own hands.
