In what many people have described as one of the most bizarre incidents to happen in the recent past, police are investigating an incident where a swarm of bees attacked and killed a KRA officer in his vehicle last week in Mombasa.

John Muthine Mutwiri, an investigation and enforcement officer at KRA was driving a Subaru Forester en-route to Majengo when bees stormed into his car stinging him in the face and back for several minutes. According to a police report, Mr Mutune was in the company of colleagues Hezekiel Gikambi and Maurice Kinyua. But the two fled when a swarm of bees gained entry into the vehicle. 

Alarmed coast residents claim it was a “superhuman” incident blaming it on witchcraft saying the bees only “concentrated on one person”! The bees struck at the Redbrick area in Majengo, Mombasa County, passengers ran in different directions.  Mutwiri was overwhelmed by the bee stings and fell at a nearby garage owned by Mwaruwa Chikophe. Chikophe immediately got a Tuk Tuk and rushed him to Coast General Teaching and Referral Hospital for treatment. Unfortunately, he was pronounced dead on arrival. His body was transferred to the hospital’s morgue awaiting autopsy. 

In yet another incident, a funeral ceremony in, Kapmeswon Village in Sotik, Bomet County, was postponed after a swarm of bees attacked mourners, three of the bereaved family members are reported to have sustained severe injuries before being rushed to Kaplong Mission Hospital.
