A brawl broke out at a bar in Musoli, Kakamega County, allegedly involving Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) soldiers and Kenya Police officers over an unpaid bill.

According to a police report, the incident unfolded on Sunday when three suspected officers entered the bar for an evening of relaxation. The bar owner, who alerted the authorities, stated that he served them drinks amounting to Kes. 4,250, but they refused to settle the bill.

He added that as they were leaving, they also stole his phone, Kenyans.co.ke reports. When he confronted them outside the bar, they initiated a physical altercation by assaulting him.

“The commotion attracted members of the public and police officers who were on foot patrol within Musoli Centre,” read the police report in part.
