A 31-year-old man was on Tuesday night beaten to death by his neighbour at Tuwan village in Saboti, Trans Nzoia County after he found him sleeping with his wife.

The police said the neighbour found Kelvin Keruba around 9pm in his house and attacked him as he tried to run away.

Trans Nzoia West OCPD Jackson Mwenga said that Mr Keruba, a businessman in Kitale town, was found by his brother unconscious outside his neighbour’s house.

He raised alarm and was assisted by other neighbours to rush him to hospital but died while undergoing treatment.


“He was rushed to Mt Elgon Hospital in Kitale where he succumbed to his injuries,” he told the Nation on Wednesday.

The neighbour was said to have laid a trap after suspecting the man of having an affair with his wife.

Mr Mwenga said preliminary investigations showed that the deceased was hit with a blunt object on the head saying he had several scars.

The man is being sought as he was said to have fled after the incident.

“We have launched a manhunt for him as he since gone into hiding,” he said.

The whereabouts of his wife also not known but police suspect she could have run away as well.
