Boniface Mutuku Munyao, a 35-year-old man from Kangundo in Machakos County of Kenya was arraigned before a Kangundo Magistrate’s Court on Thursday January 9, for allegedly engaging in bestiality with a female dog before killing it.
The suspect’s last sexual act on the dog was on Wednesday January 8, after which he strangled the animal with a rope. He was reportedly arrested after neighbours made a complaint of hearing the dog yelping at night.
It was gathered that Munyao’s neighbours broke into his house after a foul smell emanated from the building on Thursday January 9. A neighbour told the police;
“We found used condoms and the dog’s carcass in his house.”
The area chief, Bethwel King’ele 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”
Commenting on the incident, Mateta area chief Bethel Kingele said it was suspected Munyao was under the influence of hard drugs while engaging in the unnatural act.
The man who denied the charges against him after being arraigned before Magistrate D. Orimba, was freed on Ksh100, 000 cash bail. The case will be mentioned on January 22.
