A middle-aged man has been arrested for allegedly killing his brother in Dandora, Nairobi.
A police report seen by K24 Digital indicates that Simon Maina stabbed his brother Stephen Muli after an altercation over an undisclosed matter.
The suspect's wife is said to have found the deceased badly wounded on the right side of the chest.
“There was an altercation at around 16:24 pm in the evening and my husband Simon Maina picked a kitchen knife and stabbed his brother Stephen Muli,” the woman told the police.
Rushed to hospital in Dandora
Muli was rushed to Launch Medical Centre within Dandora in critical condition where he succumbed to his injuries.
The police arrived at the scene when the deceased had already been pronounced dead at the hospital.
The suspect was later arrested and upon search, he was found with a blood-stained kitchen knife. He was placed in custody as police continue with investigations before arraigning him in court.
The body of the deceased was moved to City Mortuary awaiting autopsy.
In a separate incident, a mobile snatcher and dealer are expected to be arraigned in court after they were on Tuesday arrested in the Kilimani area of Nairobi.
Police reports indicate the suspect whose phone had been stolen along Kabarnet Road in Kilimani was approached by a group of about ten motorcycles who had pillion passengers and was stopped before being robbed of his phone valued at Ksh23,000.
Officers chased the suspects, who had moved to Joseph Kang’ethe road, and managed to arrest one of the suspects who was among the gang with the help of the victim.
However, his accomplices managed to escape to an unknown destination.
The suspect led the police officers to the dealer who had bought the phone.
Two phones including the one stolen from the victim were recovered from the dealer.
