Man electrocuted while peeing on a fence

18 February 2015, 15:01 Kelvin Mureithi

Meru - A middle-aged man escaped death by a whisker Tuesday night after he was electrocuted while peeing on a fence along Milimani Estate.

Dennis Kinoti was walking home with his friend Reuben Mwiti after a night out when he stopped for a short call next to the security fence surrounding a home of an Asian business tycoon in Meru, ignored a warning written “Do not pee here.”

"Kinoti inadvertently made contact with the wire mesh and was electrocuted," said the compound guard.

His friend Mwiti added that Kinoti had ignored the warning note from the fence, saying that it was just meant to scare people away.

Drunk Kinoti was looking for a place to relieve himself around 2am when the incident occurred, but he was rescued by his friend who alerted the watchman and rushed him to Meru General Hospital where he is undergoing treatment.
