Form 4 student kills his mother after returning home from school in Homa Bay

A 16-year-old form four student is being held at Mbita Police Station over allegations of murdering his mother at Kitare Village, Homa Bay County.

This was after the 16-year-old, who is a form four student at Nyatoto Mixed Secondary School hacked his 39-year-old mother, Nelis Ogutu to death using a machete.

Confirming the incident, Kayanja Sub Location Assistant Chief Moses Sirawa, said the suspect arrived home from school, on Thursday evening and attacked his mother on the spot after evening meal.

According to Sirawa, the investigators believe that the boy may have committed the terrible act because of mental problems.

The suspect strangled the victim and then attacked her with a machete for reasons that are still unknown.

Area residents responded after hearing a commotion at the widow’s house but it was too late for them to save her.

Angry villagers wanted to lynch the boy but he was rescued by the village administrators who handed him over to the police.

Meanwhile, the body of the deceased was taken to Kirindo mortuary.

A similar incident occurred in Ghuma village where a woman, aided by her son allegedly hacked her 38-year-old lover to death with a machette on May 22, 2024.

Later, the victims younger brother received a call from his brother’s working place informing him that the brother had not reported to work for two days.

His family members tried reaching him through the phone but his mobile phone was off, before they reported the incident to Bhabar police and filed a missing person’s complaint.

The victim’s lover told police that he had threatened to kill her and her son because he was no longer interested in the relationship.

However, she decided to eliminate him in self defence before he could allegedly kill them.
