A boy in Kesemya village, Kirenget, Nakuru County was thoroughly beaten by locals over the weekend after he was nabbed in the act with a guernsey calf.
Speaking to SDE, a witness -Maritim- who is a resident of the village, stated that the 16 year old was allegedly nabbed red handed with the calf.
“He had taken cows to a river frequented by villagers in the area.” Said Maritim.
Maritim explained that the boy who comes from a neighbouring village had been employed as a herder by one of the locals.
Women who were tending to a maize plantation at an adjacent field next to the river say they saw the boy drive the calf to a muddy area where it could not free itself.
“The women raised alarm and angry villagers rushed to the scene before frogmarching him with whips and blows,” said Maritim.
In the video seen by SDE, the suspect was forced to pose next to his ‘bride’ as he was questioned over the bizarre incident as bemused passers-by milled around.
The boy shocked the residents after he revealed that the act was not strange to him. “He said he had seen it being done by his uncle who did it on goats,” added our witness.
After the thorough beating, he was handed his belongings by his employer and told to go back to his home never to return.
