One man lost his life and two others sustained serious injuries after brawling at a nightclub in Kisumu’s Kondele area on Sunday night.

According to Kisumu Central Sub-county police commander Antony Maina, the problem started when three knife-wielding individuals appeared and demanded access to the club at around 4:30 am.

However, the club’s security could not allow them into the club and a commotion ensued as they tried to gain forceful entry into the club, which resulted in two men being stabbed.

After the stabbing incident, the two men who were stabbed were rushed to Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Teaching and Referral Hospital where one victim lost his life while receiving treatment.

The other victim was treated and got discharged.

During the standoff, one suspect also sustained injuries and was taken to hospital albeit under the watchful eye of the police, while two of his accomplices escaped.

Apparently, the deceased was a manager of a popular Ohangla musician who was performing at the nightclub and the other person who was injured in the melee was also the security personnel of the musician.
