A man said to be in his 70s has reportedly chopped off his manhood after his wife, children accused him of sleeping around with widows and other women in their village.
According to reports, the man who hails from Kericho County, Kenya is currently battling for his life at Litein Mission Hospital after using a kitchen knife to chop off his penis.
Naija News learnt that the tea farmer had been accused several times of using his manhood to satisfy village women, especially widows, abandoning his family. According to Assistant Chief Sylvester Sigei, Getarwet Sub-Location, while confirming the incident on Monday, October 26, the 70-year-old man severed his penis with a kitchen knife after he could not convince his family of not engaging in the act he was been accused of.

Sigei disclosed further that the man has four acres of tea of which his family claim they have never enjoyed tea bonus paid by Kenya Tea Development Agency despite being the ones who weed and pluck the tea bushes.
The Chief added, “Among the other accusation levelled against the man is that his has even used the tea bonus to construct a permanent house for one of the widow’s he intends to inherit yet he has not constructed a good house for his own family.”
According to a source at the hospital, it took about three hours to reattach the hanging manhood of the tea farmer. However, personnel of the hospital, Dr Phillip Blasto while given an update on the farmer’s health status on Tuesday (today) confirmed that he is in a stable condition.
