In Kenya, a 21-year-old man will spend ten years in jail after a court found him guilty of killing his grandmother over porridge flour dispute.
Maxton Omondi, who confessed to causing his grannyâs death, was charged with manslaughter after entering a plea agreement with the Prosecution.
Omondi fatally attacked Jael Akuru, 82, on February 8, 2021 in Ramba Village, Rarieda Sub-County.
The court was told that Omondi returned home in the evening and demanded Akuru gives him food. When the granny said she hadnât cooked, Omondi asked for porridge flour. Akuru, again, declined to give him the flour, saying Omondiâs father had neglectedÂ her.
An irritated Omondi, thereafter, grabbed his granny, who was seated on the bed, and began assaulting her.
The elderly woman succumbed to her injuries on the spot.
On realising that his relative had died, Omondi fled to an unknown destination. He was, however, tracked down and arrested the following day.
The suspect would later confess to killing Akuru.
While sentencing Omondi to ten years in jail, Siaya High Court judge,Â Roselyn Aburili, said she was âlenientâ with the convict because he proved he did not intend to kill his kinsperson.
