Police in Matete have launched a manhunt for a 21 year old man for allegedly killing his 35 year old brother over a domestic conflict in Nambalayi village, Kilibot location on Wednesday night.

Confirming the incident, Matete Sub County Police Commander (SCPC) Thomas Ototo said the suspect, Rasto Muchambo, attacked his elder brother Isaya Mwenye with a machete at around 8pm leaving him with deep cuts on the head after accusing him of assaulting his wife.

The victim was rescued and rushed to Webuye Sub county hospital in the neighbouring Bungoma county where he was pronounced dead upon arrival at around 10pm.

The suspect is still at large as police launch investigations into the incident with an aim of arresting and arraigning him in Court.

Ototo has appealed to residents to ensure they report such crimes on time for quick response from his officers saying it was disappointing that despite the incident occurring on Wednesday at 8pm it was reported on Thursday midmorning.
