Son Throws Father Into Well Over Land Dispute

A 60-year-old man identified as Samuel Tanui, has been thrown into a 20 feet well by his 22-year-old so over land dispute.

Mr Tanui from Emitiot sub-location, Chepalungu Sub-County, Bomet County, Kenya, has been left battling for his life at Longisa County Referral Hospital after spending three days inside the well.

According to area Assistant Chief Lenny Ngeno, Tanui had earlier refused to grant his 22-year-old son Charles Kiplangat Rotich permission to sell the family land and it is speculated this pushed his son into hatching a plan to kill him.
