Police in Kenya are holding two boys, both aged 14, for allegedly beating a Form One student to death in fight over a girlfriend.
The victim, a student of Han Dow Secondary School in Lugari sub-county, was hit with a stone on the head by a Standard Seven pupil of St Louis Saisi Primary School, in a fight that also involved his friend.
The victim was taken to a local Hospital, where he died while undergoing treatment.
Police Commander Bernard Muli told media that the three were engaged in a scuffle over a girl.
He said the incident was reported to police station.
â€śOfficers have arrested two boys and they will appear in court to face murder charges once we complete investigations,â€ť said Mr Muli.
He appealed to area residents to report relationship differences to the police for immediate action rather than resort to fights.
â€śThe incident could have been prevented if the matter was reported early. Parents should monitor their children’s behavior and guide them on how to handle teenage issues,â€ť he said.
