Woman Kills Man Who Allegedly Defiled Her Daughter In Nandi

Residents of Kolong village in Emgwen constituency, Nandi County were left in disbelief on Thursday after  a woman allegedly killed a man she claims defiled her two-year-old daughter.

Kamombo Patrol Base police had heard about the incident from the area chief who reported that the woman, only identified as Cheptoo, had confessed to killing the alleged paedophile over a phone call.

Kamombo officers, on arriving at the scene  were barred from accessing the site by an irate mob which was after Cheptoo’s blood.

“They (mob) wanted to kill Cheptoo. The officers from Kamombo then called for reinforcements from Kapsabet Police Station,” Nandi Central Sub-County Police Commander David Anyir said.

“Additional officers from Kapsabet then rushed to the scene to support the Kamombo officers and rescue the woman.”

The officers were afterwards able to rescue the woman whom the mob had roughed up.

“Our patrol vehicle’s windscreen was smashed by residents but we were able to rescue the woman. The mob however barred us from retrieving the deceased’s body,” Anyir said.

He added that the woman’s house was burnt down following the rescue.

Police, Anyir went on, have since asked the area’s chief to negotiate for the release of the man’s remains.

Cheptoo is currently nursing her injuries at Kapsabet Referral Hospital after which a legal action will be subjected to her.
