The pair was apprehended as they were traveling to Kericho County, where it is thought they were hired to perpetrate murder and other atrocities, according to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI).

A group of seven people, including Philip Omollo and Dan Kuma, are thought to have broken into a residence in Lala village, Arujo location, Homa Bay County, gang-raped a woman, and then fled with unspecified household goods.


When the incident on May 10, 2023 took place, the gang that claimed to have been ordered to kill the family turned to the man of the house and struck him on the head with a blunt weapon, knocking him out cold.

Luckily, the man survived the attack.
