‘Women shy’ hen defiler sentenced to 15 months imprisonment

An 18-year-old man who on Monday this week shocked a court in Bungoma when he admitted having sex with a hen claiming he fears approaching women has been sentenced to 15 months in prison.

Bungoma Principal magistrate Stephen Mogute jailed Kevin Simiyu after ​he pleaded guilty to having sex with a hen.

The accused was arrested last Friday ​after he was caught red-handed defiling a hen by its owner Judith Nasimiyu.

He admitted the bestiality charge saying he is despised by women because he is poor.


Mr Simiyu was caught performing the unnatural act on a hen around 7pm at Nandolia village in Kanduyi constituency.

According to the owner of the hen, the fowl died of exhaustion. Photos of the dead hen were also produced in court as evidence.

The magistrate ordered the accused to be remanded at the Bungoma GK Prison until he appeared in court on Thursday when the verdict was delivered.
