A 22-year-old boy was killed after he was gone after by villagers who suspected him raping a 100-year-old woman.
Pius Mwireri drained to death in the wake of sustaining serious wounds from the irate mob in Karundori town in Runyenjes, Embu County, Kenya, police said.
The woman had raised the alert and villagers from the general public hurried to her guide.
They then, at that point, grabbed the 22-year-old boy who was nabbed for raping a 100-year-old woman and exposed him to crowd activity before being killed.
Embu East Police Commander Emmanuel Okanda encouraged individuals on Tuesday, July 19, not to take law into their hands.
He likewise said investigations are in progress into the occurrence and added that the body of the departed was taken to Kyeni emergency clinic morgue and is awaiting a posthumous assessment.
The grandma was supposedly raced to a similar facility for a check-up after the incident.
She is recovering at home presently, as indicated by reports.
