A fight between a group of friends over a football match ended tragically after one man died in a Naivasha estate.

The group was watching the live match that was being aired on television when the incident occurred on Sunday night.

The incident took place at Kinamba centre along the Naivasha-Kirima road. Muturi was left bleeding from his head outside a petrol station located a few metres from the bar where the friends were drinking.

Following the Sunday night incident, police have launched a manhunt for the attackers as friends and relatives tried to come to terms with the incident. A witness identified only as Peter said the friends were drinking together when an argument arose over a goal that one of the teams had scored.

“This degenerated into name-calling and the deceased was chased out of the bar and later attacked and left unconscious,” he said. Muturi’s body was found on the streets yesterday morning.

Meanwhile, a man thought to be mentally ill committed suicide at Nduro village in Naivasha a week after arriving from Meru where he worked. The 31-year-old took his life hours after asking his family members to repent their sins so that they could be accepted in heaven.
