, NAIROBI, Kenya, May 20 – Police on Saturday ruled out political rivalry in the killing of three children belonging to an Uasin Gishu Member of County Assembly (MCA) aspirant.
Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet told Capital FM News that investigations pointed to a family feud over the sale of ancestral land in Kisii.
It is understood that the Kapsoya Ward aspirant is accused of having sold the land to get money to campaign.
One of the family members has been arrested as the search for others intensifies.
The three children aged between three and six had been missing since last Saturday when they were abducted from a church in Eldoret.
Their bodies were found Friday in River Nzoia.
Their father is vying on a KANU ticket.
The bodies were found on the same day an MCA from Baringo was found dead and his body dumped in Ol Donyo Sabuk.
