It was gathered that the woman identified as Mrs Cecilia Muthoni Waigwa found her husband, Alexander Waigwa Waweru in the act, prompting her to raise an alarm which caught the neighbours’ attention.
According to the area OCPD Steven Obara, the wife became suspicious after the husband sneaked into the goats’ shelter and held one of the animals by the tail. Kenyans reports that Mrs Waigwa told the police that after she walked in on the husband committing the beastly act, he attempted to kill her and burn the house.
Mr Obara said,
“He grabbed a jerrycan of paraffin but it was too late. He later grabbed a machete to kill the wife but we intervened.”
Police described Waigwa as a dangerous and arrogant man who had been previously sentenced to five years in prison but was released.
The suspect was locked up at Nyeri Police Station as police conduct investigations into the bizarre incident.
