A 40 year old man from Konam, Seme Sub-County in Kisumu County has killed his mother over an alleged sibling rivalry.
Amos Otieno from Konam hacked his mother with a panga when she allegedly tried to stop the fight between him and his brother last night.
Eye witnesses says that Otieno was fighting his elder brother whom he claimed was receiving more love and attention from their mother.
“The sibling rivalry did not start yesterday. It is something that has been brewing because they claimed that their mother favoured their elder brother because he was from Nairobi and had money,” stated the eyewitness.
Before the incident happened, the area chief had been called to try and calm the two warring parties.
It is not clear how Otieno who had even moved back to his house came back and started a fight with his brother.
The mother died upon reaching the hospital. Her body is now lying at Lwak mortuary.
“They tried to rush her to the nearby dispensary for treatment but she unfortunately succumbed to the injuries sustained upon arrival at the dispensary,” said the eyewitness.
The two brothers and the cousins were all arrested and taken to Kombewa Police Station.
