Police have launched a manhunt for a 30-year-old man who is suspected to kill his elder brother in Ihumbu Village, Murang’a County on Sunday evening over missing KSh50 raw Matumbo.

Police said the suspect cut his brother in the head with a machete.

Their father, Onesmus Nduati illustrated how his two children fell out leading to the loss of one’s life.

“The elder one was saying that his brother had stolen a package of matumbo from him. The accused denied it. The younger one had a panga in his hand. I tried to urge them to stop quarrelling and instead talk the issue out,” Nduati said.

According to their father, his 30-year-old son is a short-tempered man who never gives space in resolving conflicts but he jumps to action.

“Efforts to cool them down were futile as the younger son, who is usually quarrelsome and hot-tempered did not want to settle the dispute in peace but attacked his 36-year-old brother with the panga,” the father said.

However, the police under Murang’a South sub-county police boss Alexander Shikondi, revealed that Onesmus Nduati filed the case at the Maragua Police Station.
