Two brothers in Muhoroni village, Kisumu county, have died after hacking one another with pangas while trying to break a fight involving their sisters-in-law.
Police say Kennedy Otieno, 36, caned his brother’s wife after she found her beating his wife. In return, the brother – Joseph Othoro, 37, came to the defense of his wife.
“Othoro was not around (during the beating) so when he came back and was told what had transpired, he went straight to their homestead where the brother is still staying with the mum and caused chaos,” said area assistant chief Teresa Omino.
The chaos saw the brothers slash one another with pangas, whereupon they inflicted head wounds on one another.
They were rushed to Jaramogi Oginga Odinga, and Ahero Hospital where they succummbed to their injuries.
