Filled with guilt the man later admitted that he was the one who had killed by his dad adding that he was shocked by what he did.
Confessing to his heinous crime Daniel says
“He just talked to me badly after I asked him for some cash(6000)Instead of him telling me he did not have the cash he told me to go ask my mother when I find her in Muranga.
I took a jembe and killed him ,then took a knife and completed the job.
Even when we reach the station I will not deny doing this,Right now I feel like a bull .Why should I deny that I killed him?”
A neighbor said that Daniel has been relying on the dad despite the fact that he is capable of working
“That man is a strong man but he loves easy things,He does not working yet he expects his dad to provide for him and when he refuses he ends up beating him.
It is such a sad day for us because the old man was loved by every body.”
