Barely four days after a young man was killed by thugs in his home after responding to a distress call from his father’s house, four people were lynched by locals after they were revealed by a medicine man Mr. Nyasi wa Manyasi from Kimilili.

The four Kinuthia Njagi, Humphrey Kiprop, Charles Wanyama who is a mechanic and the fourth who was only indentified as Fundi were caught when the medicine man arrived Wednesday morning at the deceased's home and assembled the locals.
After informing them of his mission, they all agreed in unison including the suspects and the swearing in and medication process took its course.
After a few minutes the three are said to have started behaving in a peculiar manner before starting to graze like cattle.
The fourth suspect indentified as Fundi is said to have laughed at his fellow suspects.
The fire being lit to burn the four suspects who had been lynched.
“Look at this drunkards paying for their crimes,” Fundi was quoted to have been saying and laughing to his fellow accomplices before the medication took its toll on him forcing him to run to a nearby river where he started eating grass and swallowing it with water from roadside pools.
It’s after this that the locals beat him senseless before dragging him to a fire where the bodies of his three accomplices hadbeen set on fire by the angry mob using maize cobs of which it is said they stole the money from which the maize was sold.
Some of the locals who spoke to West fm praised the medicine man saying that they had been terrorized by thieves who roam freely in the area and sending a warning to would be thiefs that their life was short-lived.
The four being torched in the presence of the Adminstration police.
John Muigai who is a village elder noted that in recent times two cows were killed while its meat was not found fearing that it could have been sold to meat sellers in Kitale.
