A 35-year-old Kenyan pastor has been arrested after he was caught in possession of his neighbours’ missing cows.
Joash Wanyonyi was nabbed with the two cows in a forest near his home and confessed to the crime, saying he wanted to use the animals to pay bride price on his wife.
Wanyonyi from Kakamega stripped himself naked after being caught red-handed and even threatened to take his own life due to the shame, K24 reports.
Owners of the cows, Thomas Namayi Ambunya and Laban Andugu Mbayaj, said they woke up on Friday, October 16 only to find their animals gone.
After a failed search mission, Ambunya said he received a phone call informing him the cleric had been caught with the two animals.
Shieywe Location chief Philip Chunge confirmed the incident.
