A somber mood has engulfed Bureti sub-county in Kericho after a woman allegedly stabbed her employer over a Sh150 debt.
The suspect identified as Jesca Chesang, reportedly stabbed her employer Joseph Kimutai Sang after he allegedly failed to pay her the said amount as salary for the day's work.
Confirming the incident, Kericho county police commander James Mugera said detectives have embarked on a probe into the incident, to determine what exactly transpired before the stabbing.
The suspect, 22, works as a tea picker in Kaborus village.
She allegedly fled the scene of the crime after committing the heinous act.
Preliminary reports indicate that the woman had gone to the home of the victim to demand for her pay, after completing her job.
