24 February 2015, 09:33 Arap Yego

Nyeri - A middle-aged man who appeared before a Kibera court in Nairobi Monday charged with the offence of allegedly hurting his neighbour's donkey has been released on a KES 50 000 bond.

Peter Gasheni, according to the charge sheet, committed the offence in Kiserian town on the outskirts of Nairobi on December 10.

This was after the animal trespassed into his homestead and ate grass in the compound.

The donkey which the accused harmed belongs to Eliud Chege and is worth KES 15 000. The owner and the Kenya Society of the Protection and Care of Animals (KSPCA) took the case to court.

The suspect denied the charge before Senior Magistrate Brian Khaemba who was sitting at the Kibera law courts.

According to the veterinary surgeon report presented before the court, the beast of burden had a deep cut on its right leg, which is said to have been caused by a machete. The report further stated that the donkey cannot use its front leg again after the attack.

Senior Magistrate Brian Khaemba fixed the hearing date of the case on May 5, where he will determine the matter.
