A man was rescued from the wrath of irate locals in Nandi county who planned to lynch him for killing his family.
Residents of Kamulat hamlet in Kipkaren awoke on Thursday to find a lady and three children had been murdered by their father, allegedly as a result of a family feud.
Philip Lokorwen, the suspect, arrived home on Wednesday night and attacked his wife for supposed infidelity, according to Kaplemur Assistant Chief Gilbert Chepkwony.
The children are reported to have defended their mother, Risper Chelimo, an act that enraged the man who killed them with a kitchen knife.
They were seven, nine, and eleven years old.
The suspect is being treated for nursing injuries he received from people at the Kapsabet County Referral Hospital.
