Kisii man dies after woman ‘locks his head between her thighs’ http://ht.ly/rC4830n8cc0 via eDaily Kenya
The deceased hailed from Gionsaria Village in Nyamache Sub-County in Kisii County.
He died on Friday after a youthful woman locked his head between her thighs and, thereafter, released him, causing the man to fatally hit his head on a tarmac road.
Area chief Oganda Matego said the man, who is popularly known in the area as ‘Doctor’, was held between the woman’s thighs for approximately one minute, while the woman’s female friend lifted ‘Doctor’s’ legs in the air.
When the woman, who had locked the man, released him, his head hit the road.
Matego said it is suspected the two were lovers, and were “playing” when the bizarre death occurred.
The two women rushed ‘Doctor’ to Nyamache District Hospital, but he was pronounced dead on arrival. His body was moved to the facility’s mortuary awaiting a postmortem examination.
The women were arrested by police from Nyangusu station, who were called to the health facility by a medical officer who received ‘Doctor’.
Upon receiving news of ‘Doctor’s’ death, angry residents torched four houses believed to be owned by the suspects.
Investigations into ‘Doctor’s’ death are ongoing.
‘Doctor’ worked as a turnboy on vehicles transporting tea leaves in Kisii.
