Another area resident, Mr Alan Kariuki said that the charged crowd even took some parts of a motorbike and used them to light the fire that ended the lives of the two boys.

“They removed part of the motorcycle, bought petrol and used it to end the lives of the two young boys,” he said.

Buruburu police boss Adamson Bungei asked the youth not to involve themselves in crime but also condemned incidents of mob justice.

“It is time the youth stop involving in crime since the fruits are so bitter. But members of the public should also not take action into their own hands,” he said.
