A middle-aged man from Kangundo in Machakos County of Kenya identified as Boniface Mutuku Munyao, was yesterday Thursday January 9, arraigned before a Kangundo Magistrate’s Court, for allegedly engaging in bestiality with a female dog before killing it.
It was gathered that Boniface’s last sexual act on the dog was on Wednesday January 8, after which he used a rope to strangled the animal. He was however arrested by the police after neighbors made a complaint of hearing the dog yelping at night.
It was further learnt that Boniface’s neighbors broke into his house on Thursday January 9, after a foul smell emanated from the building. A neighbor told the police;
“We found used condoms and the dog’s carcass in his house.”
Bethwel King’ele, the area chief, who backed the claim said;
“He was found having sex with the dog after some neighbours noticed a foul smell in the abandoned homestead which belongs to his grandmother.
“In his own confession, the man said he ‘defiled’ the dog for several days and later strangled the animal to death using a rope. Dozens of used condoms were also recovered from the scene.
“That is a very shameful and an ungodly act which we cannot tolerate in society. Those claiming the man is of unsound mind should also tell us why he decided to use condoms on the dog”
Mateta area chief, Bethel Kingele who commented on the incident, said it was suspected Munyao was under the influence of hard drugs while engaging in the unnatural act.
Boniface who denied all the charges leveled against him after being arraigned before Magistrate D. Orimba, was freed on Ksh100,000 (N357k) cash bail. The case will be mentioned on January 22.
