Thug lynched, body burnt in Makueni
A suspected thug was beaten to death on Friday and his body set ablaze at Sultan Hamud town in Makueni county. The man was found attempting to break into a kiosk at 6am. Police officers took the body to the Makindu Level 4 Hospital mortuary. Last week, armed gangsters invaded the town and hacked two guards to death. They then broke into several shops and made away with gas cylinders. A third guard is still fighting for his life at the Kenyatta National Hospital. He suffered serious head wounds as he was slashed with a panga.
