– The man allegedly stole a neighbour’s goat and raped it to death before he was found, and went into hiding
A man in Nyamira county escaped lynching by an irate mob after he raped a goat to death.
The incident took place in Kemera ward, Kebirichi sub-location on Sunday afternoon July 10, 2016.
The accused allegedly stole the goat and tied it to a tree stump in the bushes, where he raped the animal before taking off after two herds boys who were searching for the missing goat emerged.
He was not clearly identified as he ran away before the boys caught up with him.
The boys informed fellow residents who came to the scene, only to find the goat lying lifeless, reported HiviSasa.

“We are in shock because some herds boys called us and when we arrived at the scene; the young man had disappeared in the nearby bushes. He had tied the goat, raped it and it lay lifeless on the ground,” said Peter Machuki, one of the residents.
They launched a manhunt for the suspect baying for his blood, but were unable to apprehend him, and later reported the matter at the chief’s office.
“This incident is abnormal because we have never witnessed such an incident, especially in our location. It’s unfortunate and the authorities should find the best solution to this because it may escalate into a bigger issue,” Machuki added.
Kebirichi assistant chief Charles Nyameyio condemned the beastly act and called upon locals to always report such incidents, so as to ensure culprits are brought to book.
He assured the locals that authorities were pursuing the suspect.
“I want to thank locals for being honest and reporting the matter because in other areas, people rarely talk about such issues. As government officials, we are pursuing the suspect so that we dig deep into the matter,” he said.
