Police in Mulot, Bomet county are investigating an incident where a 16-year-old girl stabbed another minor to death following a disagreement over a 2GB memory card.

According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), the juvenile stabbed her age mate in her chest killing her instantly.

Efforts to rush the deceased to the hospital proved futile after doctors at Longisa District Hospital confirmed her dead on arrival.

The incident occurred outside Sweet Wines and Spirits next to West Inn bar in the sleepy Mulot Sunset trading centre.

It has not been established exactly whether the adolescent girls were school-going children and what business they were conducting in prohibited areas.

The suspect has since been arrested and is currently in custody at Mulot Police Station being processed for arraignment.

Meanwhile, detectives have widened the scope of their investigations in this matter to establish whether adults had accompanied the young girls to the liquor shops, whether before their argument they were intoxicated and who was responsible if that was the case.

In the recent past, Mulot town has gained notoriety as a haven for mobile money fraudsters with a majority of suspects engaged in the fast-spreading vice having been arrested in the area.
