On being pressed by the locals, the bachelor confessed to having committed the act saying this was the fifth cow he had accosted sexually. “It is not my first time. I have had sex with four other cows in Ndunduri and Wanyororo. I am pleading for mercy,” he said.
The owner, who had gone to the farm to harvest her crops, came back and found the man zipping up his pair of trousers. The woman descended on him with blows, stones, and sticks, leaving him with critical injuries.
“Don’t kill me…let me surrender my piece of land to pay for the cow,” Mwaura said. “I always have sex with the cow whenever I feel like because I fear girls might infect me with HIV.”
