Residents of Mukavakava Village in Malava Constituency, Kakamega County, have resolved to traditional means of action against criminals after a cow’s genitalia and tail being chopped off by unknown people.
The incident happened at the home of Peris Luvaka, a widow, who said she depends on the cow to earn a livelihood as well as pay her children’s school fees.
“I have children in secondary school and this cow is my only source of income, I don’t even know where to start from,” she lamented.
The villagers will now carry out a cleansing ceremony while burying the cow in a move to capture whoever was responsible.
They said security agencies in the area have failed in curbing the rising cases of crime in the area.
‘”It will not be business as usual, despite being a pastor from the PAG church, we shall bury the cow after cleansing it because the public says we keep praying but nothing happens,” one of them said as reported by West FM.
Confirming the incident, the area chief Daniel Mulambula urged residents to calm down and not take traditional action on the culprits but bring them to book when found.
