MAKUENI, Kenya Jan 3 – A man went berserk Saturday, and slashed his mother and sister to death in an incident that left villagers of Metava area in shock.

“He has fled after the incident and a manhunt has been launched to get him,” said Agnes Maswai, an Assistant Chief at Machinery area, “The mother and daughter are all dead.”
Maswai said a knife was recovered at the scene.
Locals told journalists that the man on the run is an ex-convict who was released from prison in July 2020.
