A Kakamega woman who is suspected of poisoning her neighbours chicken is nursing serious injuries following a beating by her neighbours.
A source who recorded the beating noted that the chicken died minutes after it was seen in the suspect’s home leading to the owner’s fury.
The chicken owner is afterwards said to have called her children to beat up the woman blaming her for the chicken’s death.
“Ndugu yangu mdogo alipata kuku hapa akaipeleka kwa jirani, vile aliipeleka huyo mama akasema mama yangu mdogo ameiwekea sumu. Akatoka na kisirani akaambia watoto wake wote wakuje na marungu ndio wakaanza kumchapa,” said Mary Khavetsa, the witness.
Soon the neighbours intervened and ferried the woman to the nearest hospital and later forwarded the issued to local authorities.
The victim denied the charges as her husband called for justice against the group that injured her wife.
“Hii iilikua ni mpango walikua nayo ya kumchapa bibi yangu na wametekeleza. Mimi sirudi nyuma hadi sheria ifanyike,” noted the husband.
