A teenage son of a Nakuru politician is under police custody for stabbing two neighbors he accused of rejecting his father’s parliamentary offer.

The 17-year-old stormed into their neighbor’s house and stabbed a 48-year-old woman and her sister, 35, accusing them of supporting a rival.

Nakuru County Police Chief Peter Mwanzo confirmed the attack, noting that the minor was in police custody and officers were still investigating the matter.

Mwanzo stated that the police intend to charge the minor with attempted murder.

Jane Kibe and her sister Peris Wanjiru were attacked in their home by the teenager who accused them of supporting his father’s rival in the upcoming polls.

Kibe was quoted by The standard explaining that the minor entered the house whose main door was open and went to their bedroom where he stabbed her 18 times and Wanjiru 9 times, causing them serious injuries.

“I was shocked when the boy burst into the bedroom, smoking with rage. He came to visit us and I knew him as our neighbor’s son. I didn’t read any mischief at first,” Kibe said.

“I didn’t understand how I had wronged him. He pushed me to the bed and started stabbing me. The boy accused me of not supporting his father, who is a candidate for parliament.”

Wanjiru was in the bathroom in the house when she heard a commotion and rushed to the bedroom where the high school student inflicted deep cuts on her.

“The boy is a good friend of my son and even visits us often. When I entered the room, I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw my sister bleeding and holding the blood-stained knife,” Wanjiru recalled.

“He stabbed me nine times, three of them very deep in the back and legs. He almost cut off one of my fingers. When we raised the alarm, the boy ran out of the house.”

Wanjiru stated that although the boy is friends with her son, they never discussed politics in his presence and that the minor’s actions shocked them.

“I do not understand where the allegations came from. Whatever happened, it is unfortunate and I would like to know why he attacked me. I fear for my safety as this is a life-threatening matter,” Wanjiru said.

Nakuru has recently been hit by a series of gang attacks and the police are involved to restore normalcy.
