Police are investigating the killing of a university student and his friend in Eldoret on Monday. Dennis Kipyakwai, a diploma student at Kisii University’s Eldoret campus, and a friend, Elias Kipruto, were attacked while on a visit to Subaru estate by a gang.

 Police have questioned the victims’ host and his girlfriend. Nicholas Kiprotich said he returned home accompanied by his girlfriend and found his guests asleep.

He woke them up and asked them to wait for him in his car parked outside the gate as the couple had a private discussion. “They were attacked as they entered the car.

I regret asking them to go out,” Kiprotich said. He said they found Kipyakwai lying unconscious near the gate and bleeding profusely.

County police boss Joseph ole Kine said they succumbed to their injuries while being treated at Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital. He said they are treating it as a robbery.
