A man was on Friday arraigned in court after allegedly stabbing and injuring his two brothers over a one hundred shilling debt.

Kanuti Tarimo, 29, was charged with stabbing Joseph Gawa Tesha and Julius Thomas Tesha in Nairobi, on March 28.

The court heard that the accused turned violent after the brothers delayed in paying him the money which was his wage for running errands for them.

The incident happened in the Majengo area, where the two victims jointly run a butchery.

The police said that Tarimo walked in and grabbed a knife before stabbing one of the brothers, according to the Nairobian on Saturday.

He then turned against the other who came in to save the first casualty, stabbing him as well.

They were rushed to the hospital where one was treated and discharged while the other who was badly injured was admitted for special care.

Tarimo was apprehended by members of the public and turned in to the police for legal procedure.

He, however, denied the charges with the hearing expected to take place in two weeks time.
