A form three student was lynched by irate mob for stealing kshs350 from M-pesa shop in Wagusu trading centre, Siaya County.

West Sakwa location chief who confirmed the incident said the deceased reportedly broke into a shop before stealing Kshs350 from an attendant’s desk inside the shop.

According to the local administrator, the deceased posing as a mobile technician, convinced the M-pesa attendant later stole from him.

On realising the that his Kshs350 that was below his desks is missing, he raised alarm that attracted the attention of the area residents who blocked the student from escaping further.

The enraged group while armed with stones, thorns, blocks and wooden planks beat the student to a pulp.

He was later rescued by two administration police officers attached to Kopolo area police post who rushed him to Nyangoma Division hospital for emergency treatment.

The efforts by the medics to have him transferred to Bondo District hospital for specialized treatment proved futile as he succumbed to his injuries.

His body was later transferred to a local hospital in matangwe as a postmortem is scheduled for Monday next week.
