Sect member offers son, 5, as sacrifice

By BERNARD KWALIA


A man claiming to have spoken to God on Tuesday slaughtered his first born child as a sacrifice in Kitale.

The man, a staunch follower of Ingrafted Fellowship Church, killed his 5-year-old son at Sikhendu and surrendered himself at the local police station fearing the wrath of the public.

The man is said to have made several attempts to kill the boy before he finally did it on Tuesday.

The suspect told the Nation that God spoke to him before he picked up a kitchen knife, held a short prayer and slaughtered the boy like a chicken.

“God spoke to me to give him something that I love most and because I love my son I decided to offer him as sacrifice,” he said.

He said his wife was away when he committed the crime and only returned home shortly after.

The suspect confessed that he had been a member of the church for only one and half month.

Area police boss Karisa Mwaringa said they were questioning the suspect.

Doctor’s report


Mr Mwaringa said the suspect would be taken for psychiatric test.

The doctor’s report would determine the charges the man would face.

He is currently being held at Kitale police station to assist officers with investigations while the body of the boy was taken to Kitale District Hospital mortuary awaiting a post-mortem examination on Wednesday or Thursday.
