Central Kenya: A 23-year-old man is being held
at Nyeri police station after he was allegedly caught
sexually assaulting a goat at Ngagirithi village.
The man is said to have tethered the animal to a tree
at night and committed the unnatural act.
The goat belonged to his grandmother. “I was asleep
when I heard a commotion as someone struggled to
remove the goat from the house,” she said.
When she woke up, she found her grandson clad in
only a shirt. When she asked him what was
happening, he said he had come to check on the goat
after he heard the commotion.
Wangui said she didn’t know her grandson was
planning to do the unspeakable.
She, however, revealed that he has been behaving
badly since he ran away from Kitale two years ago.
“He tried to strangle his father before he came to
live with me. I believe he has been smoking bhang,’’
The suspect was caught in the act by a neighbour,
who was awoken by the goat’s cries.
The suspect fled after he was accosted but was
captured a short distance away by a mob after the
neighbour raised alarm.
