Kenya: Man Gets 10 Years for Goat Rape

A 28-year-old man was yesterday sentenced to 10 years imprisonment by a Malindi court for sexually abusing a neighbour's goat at Dabaso in Kilifi county. Katana Kitsao Gona pleaded guilty before Malindi resident magistrate Muthiu Nzibe.

Prosecuting chief inspector Jimmy Kimaru said Gona was caught red handed by the goat's owner in a nearby bush on November 25. He said the accused committed the offence in the bush where the goat had been tied to graze by the owner in the afternoon.

The court heard that another man who had gone to relieve themselves in the bush caught Gona red handed in the act and reported to the owner Serah Kadenge."The owner with the help of wine tappers cornered and took him to Watamu police station," he said.

He said a medical examination was conducted by Munga Gambo a vetenary officer from Malindi who confirmed that the goat had been abused sexually.
