Police in Homa Bay County, Kenya have launched a manhunt for a retired soldier who allegedly killed his 91-year-old mother following a land dispute in Kamagak location, Rachuonyo South sub-county.
The ex-solder is accused of stabbing to death his mother, identified as Hellen Ajwang Odiango, after they differed over a piece of land which belongs to the deceased.
The suspect, who served as a soldier in Tanzania, has had a protracted row over ownership of the piece of land with his mother.
It is reported that the suspect left home last year for an unknown place with his family, only to return on Friday and begin squabbling with his mother.
The altercation later led to a physical fight during which he reportedly stabbed the mother with a knife on the chest and head.
Rachuonyo South sub-county Police Commander Lilies Wachira said the granny died while being rushed to Rachuonyo South sub-county hospital for medical attention.
