A 26-year-old motorcycle operator, Gabrielle Simiyu, was nearly lynched by an angry mob in the village of Nangwe, Kenya, on Friday night after he was caught raping a goat. Simiyu was caught by the owner of the goat late at night, he was almost lynched before he was rescued by the police.
Mirror reports that it wasn’t the first time that Simiyu would violate animals in the area. They claimed he had previously violated a cow and a chicken in the village.
The owner of the goat, Richard Wanyonyi, said he heard his animals bleating late at night, he assumed they were strangling each other so he went to the cowshed and was surprised to find Simiyu when he flashed his torch, but Simiyu ran away leaving his shoes. In the morning, he took the shoes to motorcycle operators who identified the shoes as Simiyu’s.
Simiyu admitted to raping the goat. He said he was rejected by women at a funeral and pleaded with people to take him to a doctor.
“I have a serious problem and need help. Every time I approach a girl she refuses and it really pains me. “I am appealing to well-wishers to take me to a doctor or a specialist so the problem I have can be identified.”
