There was drama, shock, and disbelief in Tetu Constituency, Nyeri County, after a man was found engaging in an unnatural act with a goat.
Mr. Alexander Waigwa Waweru, 70, was caught in the act in his home in Gichira village by his wife Mrs. Cecilia Muthoni Waigwa on Tuesday at around 4:30 pm.
A shocked and dumbfounded Mrs. Waigwa raised alarm by screaming, prompting a huge crowd of villagers to gather in the homestead.
Area OCPD Steven Obara confirmed the incident saying Mrs. Waigwa told them she got suspicious when she saw her husband get in the shed of their two goats and held one by the tail.
The woman was reportedly peeping from the rear view of their house as Mr. Alexander struggled with the goat.
After being caught, Mr. Alexander tried to burn down their house and threatened to kill his wife before the crowd and officers intervened.
“He grabbed a jerrycan of paraffin but it was too late. He later grabbed a machete to kill the wife but we intervened,” said the police boss as quoted by Nairobi News.
The man was taken to Muthinga Police post and later to Nyeri Police Station where he is being held as investigations continue.
Investigating police officers and veterinary officers took samples from the animal for analysis to determine whether the offense really took place.
According to residents, the man is retired from the disciplined forces.
