On the night of boxing day, a KDF Sergeant was clobbered to death by a group of six people who have since been arrested.
The 38-year-old soldier & his brother were walking home from Fahari Hotel in Utawala, where they had made merry all evening imbibing drinks.
Along the way, they came across a couple on a rendezvous & the deceased greeted the lady much to the disgust of her fiancé.
An argument ensued topping off to a stone-throwing match pitting the couple on one side and the Sergeant leading the charge on the other.
When the couple was overpowered, they raised alarm screaming for help claiming that they had been attacked by robbers. As a result, a mob of six men came to the couple’s aid and clobbered the Sergeant to death. His brother escaped by a whisker.
Detectives have since arrested five suspects in connection with the murder. They will be arraigned on Monday to answer to their crimes.
