A 35-year-old man from Kakamega county is being held by the police for allegedly killing his mother.
Makomere Shikokongo is said to have kicked his 60-year-old mother when she went to separate them during a fight with his two brothers.
At the time, Shikokongo was fighting with his two brothers, John Omoro and Joseph Amakobe for unknown reasons.
"A fight between three unreasonable brothers on Wednesday night, turned tragic after one of them killed their mother who had tried to prevail upon them to stop fighting. Makomere Shikokongo, 35, John Omoro, 25 and Joseph Amakobe, 40, had turned their mother’s compound in Ibokolo, Kakamega county into a battlefield, where they physically went for each other’s throats over an unknown issue," a statement by DCI read in part.
Shikokongo is said to have not been pleased with his mother's decision of trying to separate them hence forcing him to give her a kick that sent her to the ground a few meters away before resuming the fight with the brothers.
The woman is said to have died in her house following the injuries she sustained from her son's kick.
"All this happened as their 63-year-old father Paul Shikokongo was away from home. Last night, the 60-year-old woman who had complained of body aches as a result of the attack, died in her house since she had not been taken to the hospital for medical attention," DCI added.
The suspect has since been arrested by the DCI detectives and is waiting to be arraigned in court where he will be charged for murder.
