MeruA man and his girlfriend were killed by a mob in Meru County for allegedly murdering a boda boda rider and robbing him off his motorbike.

The two suspects were lynched in Thuura village, Meru County after they were suspected to have been involved in the killing of bodaboda operator Denis Mukuna.
