A middle aged man was yesterday handed 10 years behind bars for allegedly cutting off a farmer’s genitals. The man was charged together with other men who were not in court.
The court heard that David Mbugua together with his accomplices found Francis Mwangi at a local shopping center at night; they dragged him to a bush in the area where they mutilated his genitals and left him screaming in pain.
Mwangi was rushed to Kirinyaga hospital by Good Samaritans where he was treated and later transferred to Kenyatta National Hospital for reconstructive surgery.
Appearing before Wang’uru principal magistrate Bernard Ochoi, Mbugua pleaded not guilty. Ochoi however convicted him to ten years behind bars for causing actual bodily harm on Mwangi.
The sentencing of the other men connected to the assault charge will be held sometime next year.
