Shock engulfed residents of Migingo Village in Nyamira County Saturday morning when a placenta was discovered in a pot of traditional liquor locally known as Mkangara.
Confirming the incident, Nyamira South OCPD Riko Ngare said police officers made the baffling discovery during a crackdown against illicitly brewed alcohol in villages in Nyamira County.
When the police poured several liters of the illicit liquor from a huge pot, the placenta flowed out freely.
Initially, there were rumours that a female foetus had also been found in the pot, but the Nyamira South police boss refuted those claims.
OCPD Ngare says investigations have been launched to establish whether the placenta belongs to a human being or an animal.
The Nyamira South police boss said those who were nabbed selling illicit liquor in the Saturday morning crackdown, will be arraigned on Monday, June 12.
