Normalcy in Kapkwen area, Bomet county, was interrupted following an incident where a man was nabbed having allegedly engaged in ‘sexual intercourse’ with two hens, leading to their death.
33-year-old Alfred Kipkemoi Mutai alias Chesoni is said to have stolen the two hens belonging to his neighbour on Saturday evening.
He is then reported to have engaged in the unnatural act and was nabbed in the morning sneaking out with the dead hens.
Upon being pressed on where he was taking the chicken, Chesoni confessed to having committed the act.
He was then roughed up by the villagers who demanded he compensates the owner of the birds.
Richard Kibor Tonui, the owner of the hens, said he would only forgive the culprit upon receiving a compensation fee of Ksh.4, 000.
“I was shocked to wake up in the morning only to find that this man (Chesoni) had raped my hens. I want Ksh.2, 000 for each chicken, only then will I forgive him and he will never be allowed to step foot in my compound again,” said Mr. Kibor.
Following the beating by the villagers, an injured Chesoni pledged to get married and lead a better life.
