MAKUENI, Kenya Jan 27 – A 70-year-old man was arrested in Makueni Wednesday for allegedly killing his parents following a vicious land tussle.

Police said the incident occurred in the remote village of Kiima Kiu where he murdered his father aged 96 and mother aged 86. The suspect was identified as John Nzingu Ndivo.
