Residents of Naivasha are still in shock after a man cut off his private parts and threw them to a dog claiming they were of no use to him.
Screams from his one-room apartment attracted the attention of the public who called upon police for help.
The man was reeling in pains for about 30 minutes and with heavy bleeding, before taken to the Naivasha subcounty hospital. One of the neighbours, Joseph Chege, told the newsmen that they found the man half naked and bleeding profusely.
Chege said: “The man claimed the Bible ordered him to discard any body part that would deter him from entering heaven.”
Chege also said the man was a worker at one of the quarries and never he does not interact with his neighbourhoods. Another neighbour, identified as James Kabono, described the incident as shocking, said they were still trying to understand why the man would do such harm to himself.
Kabono said: “He decided to cut off the most important part of the body.”
A woman who was at the scene claimed the man was impotent and decided to cut off the body part, says: “as it was not of any service to him”.
The superintendent in charge of the hospital, Joseph Mburu, confirmed the incident and said the man was in critical condition.
“He has been taken to the theatre…we hope he shall recover,” Mburu said.
