In a disturbing incident at Shimo Estate, Makueni County, a 43-year-old soldier from the Nanyuki-based Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) and a 31-year-old laboratory technician took the law into their own hands after allegedly catching a 25-year-old man in a compromising situation with the soldier’s wife.
The soldier, accompanied by the laboratory technician, apprehended the young man and subjected him to a harrowing ordeal. His hands and legs were tightly bound with a plastic rope, rendering him helpless in the face of the impending assault.
The assailants, seemingly driven by a fit of rage, transported the captive to Makueni Police Station, where they handed him over to the authorities on charges of engaging in a sexual liaison with a married woman. The atmosphere was tense as the victim, visibly distressed, awaited his fate.
During the ordeal, the two aggressors went to extreme lengths, inflicting both physical and psychological torture on the young man. Reports indicate that they pricked his private parts with a cactus, causing unimaginable pain, and ruthlessly inflicted deep cuts on his face using a sharp object.
By the time the victim reached the police station, he was bleeding profusely, bearing the brutal scars of the vigilante justice meted out to him.
In response to this egregious act, law enforcement swiftly took action. The assaulted man was promptly transferred to Makueni County Referral Hospital for medical attention, while the two alleged assailants were arrested and detained pending further investigation.
