Kenyan man charged for having sex with camel

The prosecution had earlier told the court that Ali was caught in the act by a fellow herdsman, Galacha Jillo, around midnight.

 

A 19-year-old Kenyan man, Diba Ali, has pleaded guilty to a charge of bestiality after he was arraigned before a Marsabit Magistrates' Court for allegedly having sex with a Camel.

The accused who is a herdsman, was sentenced to one year in prison but with a fine of  Sh200,000 by the Principal Magistrate, Boaz Ombewa, after he pleaded guilty to committing the offence on September 3 at Dirib Gombo location.

The prosecution had earlier told the court that Ali was caught in the act by a fellow herdsman, Galacha Jillo, around midnight.

The court heard that the two were resting after grazing livestock belonging to one Jattani Galgallo, when Jillo woke up and heard funny noises in a nearby bush.

He reportedly crawled to the direction of the sound and was shocked to see his colleague having sex with the animal.

Jillo raised an alarm that alerted neighbours who arrested Ali and informed the owner of the herd.

He was then handed over to the police for prosecution where he accepted the charge of unnatural offence preferred against him and pleaded for leniency.
