Four people have been killed in two separate incidents in Nathu village, Igembe North District.
In the first incident, a man and a woman were stoned to death by angry villagers on suspicion they were having an illicit love affair.
Mr Alexander Mukangu, 45, and Ms Lillian Nkatha were allegedly found in a compromising position in a miraa farm house.
Mr Mukangu was said to have taken Ms Nkatha to his matrimonial home while his wife was away. Ms Nkatha was in her late 20s.
The wife got wind of the relationship and informed the villagers who confronted the two lovers.
On arrival at the home, they found the two in bed.
“They were beaten with stones and other assorted weapons. They died as they were being taken to hospital,” said Igembe police boss Ali Zimbu.
