Kwale - Police in Kwale County have arrested a middle-aged man for allegedly having an affair with a cow at Tiwi Kibwaga area on Sunday night.

Area chief, Nassoro Juma confirmed the incident and said that they have started investigations into the matter.
He said that the suspect, Hamadi Mwamtsunga was found having sexual intercourse with a cow belonging to Shaban Kilungu.
“He was caught red handed on the act at Shaban Kilungus’ cattle shed in the middle of the night before he was arrested and later handed over to police,” he said.
The suspect is being held at Kwale police station for questioning before police decide on his plight.
Chief Juma said that the suspect is likely to be taken to court on Tuesday.
Matuga sub-county administration police commander, Phideliah Kisinyo confirmed that her officers had arrested the suspect and started questioning him.
