A fight between a group of friends over a football match ended on a tragic note after one man died in a Naivasha estate.
The middle-aged man was hit on the head with a stone when he started mocking supporters of the English Premier League team Arsenal that had lost 1-2 to Wolverhampton Wanderers FC.
The group was watching the live match that was being aired on television when the incident occurred on Sunday night.
The incident took place at Kinamba center along the Naivasha- Kirima road.
The deceased was left bleeding from his head outside a petrol station located a few meters from the bar that the friends were drinking.
Following the Sunday night incident, police launched a manhunt for the attackers as friends and relatives tried to come to terms with the incident.
A witness identified only as Peter said that the friends were drinking together when an argument arose over a goal that one of the teams had scored.
“This degenerated into name-calling and the deceased was chased out of the bar and later attacked and left unconscious,” he said.
It was only on Monday morning that the lifeless body was found on the streets before police moved in to collect it.
