Reports indicate that the victim, Kisto Manyause, met a gruesome end when he was stabbed with an Okapi knife in both shoulders.

The victim’s children, a 6-year-old son and an 8-month-old daughter, were also found at the scene, further compounding the tragedy. It has been revealed that the woman and her children had traveled from Nhowe, Norton, with the intention of selling fish at the farm. The reasons behind this gruesome act remain unclear, and the police are actively pursuing leads to unravel the mystery.
