Boikang’a Assistant Chief Mr George Walter Okumu, who reported the incident to the police, said they are working to get the owner of the leg.

“The children saw dogs feasting on the human leg. Some of its flesh had been ripped off. The leg had been severed at the tibia bone,” said Mr Okumu.

The tibia bone is also known as the shin bone. It is the larger, stronger, interior of the two bones in the leg below the knee. It connects the knee with the ankle.
