Police Arrest Barber After Foreign Athlete Killed In Iten

A local barber in Iten, Elgeyo Marakwet County, was on Saturday, August 19 arrested after he allegedly killed a foreign athlete under unclear circumstances.

Confirming the incident, Keiyo North Police Commander Tom Makori says a report was made by one of the trainers in a famed athletics training camp that the athlete died after a fight ensued between him and the suspect.

The police boss adds that it is yet to be established why the two were engaging in a fight leading to the death, even as investigations begin in earnest.

Makori has, however, urged residents not to take matters into their own hands and always seek the right channels to solve issues.

The body of the athlete has been taken to Iten County Referral Hospital mortuary.
