Three security guards of Kivaywa High School who were murdered by unknown assailants in Matete Sub-county were to appear in court over theft of a television set at the school.

Edward Malala, Henry Khaoya and Evans Wanyonyi were booked at Matete Police Station after the school administration reported to the police that a television set had been stolen from the dining hall.

Situma Sitikho, one of the guards who survived the attack is fighting for his life at Webuye County Referral Hospital while a fifth guard, Lucas Wanjala, escaped unhurt.

However, police have dismissed the connection of the three murders with the theft incident at the school.

Matete Sub-county Police Commander, Thomas Ototo, termed the killings “a normal crime.”
