A man was this week beaten to death by a mob in a village in Mwingi for allegedly stealing from his neighbor. The man was lynched for stealing TWO chicken.
The poor man had suffered severe injuries to his body before the local administration showed up and rescued him from the mob justice, only to succumb to his injuries hours later.
“They tied the two chicken to his body and started beating him. We rescued him and took him to hospital but it was too late. He was pronounced dead on arrival at Mwingi General Hospital,” Kyanika sub-location assistant area Chief David Mutambu said confirming the incidence.
