A Kenya Defence Force sergeant has lost his life after he was attacked by a mob on Christmas day.
The incident reportedly took place in Utawala area following a row between the sergeant and a couple who were walking back home on Christmas night.
According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), the soldier and his brother were on their way home from Fahari Hotel where they had been drinking.
They reportedly ran into a couple and the soldier greeted the lady, an action said to have angered her better half.
“An argument ensued culminating to a stone-throwing match pitting the couple on one side and the Sergeant leading the charge on the other,” read the DCI report.
The couple then screamed for help after being overpowered by the sergeant and his brother.
“As a result, a mob of six men came to the couple’s aid and clobbered the Sergeant to death. His brother escaped by a whisker,” added the report.
Detectives from the DCI have since arrested five suspects in connection with the murder and they’re expected to be arraigned on Monday 28th December.
