Woman in Juja seeks justice after her neighbour bit her son’s genitals off
A family in Juja, Kiambu County is seeking justice after their neighbour pounced on their kin, biting off his genitals during an argument.
Joyce Muthoni said that the suspect who claimed to be a member of their estate demolished a section of a one-story house she was putting up for her two sons over claims that she was building rentals on a locality designed for residential houses.
She had received a call from the project’s security guard on the night of September 23 informing her that her house was under demolition.
After the incident, she went to the scene of the incident in the company of her youngest son.
On arrival, the duo found their neighbour huffing and puffing near the estate’s gate.
Muthoni then demanded to know why the man she had had a long-standing feud with was doing at her property.
The two reportedly got into a heated argument with Muthoni following the man home after the argument.
She later said she had only wanted to get to the bottom of the matter.
While at the suspect’s house, her son got into an argument with the suspect, and during the scuffle, his genitals were bitten off.
The family is now seeking compensation for the damages incurred in the demolition of their house and justice for the son who is now painfully recovering at home after medics from the national hospital went on strike.
“There are relevant agencies mandate to demolish houses if they don’t meet the construction standards but the man maliciously went on to destroy the project, I took a huge loan to put up,” she said.
The victim said he has been grappling with serious pain and called on authorities to expedite the arrest of the man behind his injuries
The suspect has since been arrested.
