Boy, 15, dies after brother, 11, stabs him over a wire

An 11-year-old boy on Monday stabbed his elder brother, 15, to death following a quarrel over a wire in Nakuru town.

According to a Nyumba Kumi official, Evans Ekaliche, the two boys had been left in the care of their uncle by their mother who had travelled upcountry.

The younger boy, a Standard Five pupil, is said to have been overcome by anger and threatened to stab his brother with the knife he had been holding before the quarrel broke out.

The elder brother did not heed his warning and was stabbed in the stomach.

Neighbours rushed the injured boy to a private hospital near Nakuru Nursing Home but was pronounced dead on arrival after losing too much blood.

Mr Ekaliche said the two boys had just recently moved to Nakuru town from the rural and have been living with their uncle.

Police seized the 11-year-old assailant and held him at Bondeni police station but later transferred him to another facility suitable for minors.
