A 30 year old woman was lynched by an angry mob for allegedly killing her four year old daughter at Furfural village in Likuyani Sub-County.
Confirming the incident Likuyani Sub County Police Commander Charles Muthui said the woman identified as Jackline Ndinda was accused of killing her daughter Tina Baya and dumping her body in a thicket in a neighbor’s farm.
The body was discovered by a resident who was passing near the thicket before he raised an alarm attracting the wrath of villagers who turn up in dozens carrying crude weapons before they descended upon killing her instantly.
Muthui said that this was the second incident of Ndinda killing her own child with the first incident reported two months ago where she allegedly killed her two months old daughter.
The body of a woman and her daughter were removed by officers from Matunda police Station and moved to Kitale Mortuary in the neighbouring, Trans Nzoia County.
