, KISUMU, Kenya, Jan 8 – A 69-year-old woman has died following a land tussle at Katuk village, North Nyakach location.

Wielding machetes, the two sons stormed the home in a bid to attack the son of the deceased.

They found the old woman whom they beat to death.

The body was transferred to Pap Onditi Hospital mortuary.

Police have intensified the search for the suspects who fled after the incident.
