A man in Kirinyaga County chopped off his manhood as a protest for being turned down by the women he had tried to woo into a relationship.
Leonard Kimotho, the 25 year old resident of Kiorugari village in the county left many, including his parents in utter shock when he did the unthinkable.
His parents quickly summoned a local chief to assess the damage that their son had caused to himself and the distress he had brought them.
“A family from Kiorugari called and informed me their son had chopped off his manhood. They say after secretly performing the act on himself, he rushed out of the house while bleeding profusely,” said Emmaculate Njoka as quoted by a local TV station.
The victim used a kitchen knife to chop off his manhood in protest.
“They carried (him and) his severed manhood in a polythene bag to hospital. Upon reaching the facility, doctors advised the family to take the victim to Kerugoya Level 4 Hospital since his condition was severe … The doctors at Kerugoya Level 4 Hospital have said they will try their best to reattach the manhood,” the area chief said.
As doctors attempt to make him a ‘man again’, villagers will be left wondering what got into the head of one of their own.
