Mr Christantus Wafula, 43 dies from Mob

Mr Christantus Wafula, 43, dies following a brutal beating by a man who alleged that he caught him with his wife in their matrimonial bed.

Mr Christantus Wafula alleged to have been found in the act with his neighbour’s wife by her husband, Wafubwa Makhanu, on Monday morning.

The event happened at 6 am when the husband who works in another town returned unexpectedly only to find the two in his bedroom.

According to the villagers, the husband attacked his rival.  He also alarmed his neighbours who in turn assisted him in beating up his wife’s lover.

Mr Christantus Wafula was taken to the Bungoma County Referral Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

The event has left residents of Siritanyi village in Kanduyi Constituency in confusion.

Speaking to the media, the chairman of the local policing community Agnesa Wekesa said that the killed man was well-known in the area.

“I was still in my house when I received a phone call from one of my officers that someone had been found in his neighbour’s bedroom sleeping with another man’s wife and he was being beaten to death, " he said.

"I rushed to the scene and found he was beaten badly. I asked the mob to stop the beating,” he added.

Wekesa said the mob fell on the man with debris and strokes, wooden clubs, and other crude weapons.

“I asked the man of the house where he was when the man entered his house, and he said that he had left for work but he used to suspect that something was going on before he arrived unexpectedly and caught them red-handed,” he said.

“Police arrived on time and stopped the mob from lynching the man,” he said.

The village elder, Patrick Wafula Mukonyero, said the locals are in difficulty condition since this is the first such incident to occur in the area.

Mukonyero said the woman survived from the mob leaving behind the man.

“I am very shocked because this man is well known in this area and he does not take alcohol. He only drinks tea and people usually say that it’s only drunkards who mess up and engage in such bad vices,” he said.

Bungoma South police boss Wilson Nanga said investigations underway on the matter.
