Vihiga County Governor, Moses Akaranga has condemned the brutal killing of Mumias Sugar Company Legal Secretary, Ronald Lubiya.
Akaranga expressed his disappointment over the increasing cases of insecurity in several parts of the country when he condoled with
family, relatives and community members of the deceased at Ivona village near Chavakali town in Sabatia Sub County on Saturday.
He accused the government of remaining silent over the murder of Lubiya.
Leaders from the western region are disturbed by the president’s continued silence over Lubiya’s murder, said Akaranga, adding
residents from the region expected the president would issue a statement on the tragic incident during his recent campaign tour in Kakamega County.
The governor appealed to security agencies to speed up investigations into the murder, and ensure that those culpable of Lubiya’s death are arrested and jailed according to the law, added Akaranga, who promised the county government will meet part of the funeral expenses.
Akaranga’s sentiments were echoed by Mrs Nancy Mudeheli, an elder sister to the deceased.
Mrs Mudeheli, who demanded thorough investigations into the incident disclosed the remains of the late would be laid to rest at their Chavakali home next Saturday.
As a family we expect a conclusive police inquest into the brutal murder of our late brother, stated Mrs Mudeheli.
An unknown group of thugs killed the late Lubiya at his residential compound at Harambee village in Kakamega
County early this week.
