A 23-year-old man is being held at Nyeri police station in neighboring Kenya 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,’’ she said.
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.
