A man identified as Nobert Musyoki has been arraigned for punishing his uncle by smearing human faeces on his house.
Musyoki entered a plea of guilty and further informed Mombasa Senior Principal Magistrate Vincent Ade, that he smeared his uncle’s house to punish him for “being a bully and for also being unkind” to him after he lost his job.
The suspect who lives in his uncle’s house told the court that prior to the day he carried out the act, he forced his family to use buckets for excretion in a bid to get enough poop that could smear the house’s corridor, bathroom and toilet.
“I only did it to punish him because I am hurt by his actions. He is a hater. He has made my life hard since I lost my job and now that I cannot give him handouts he wants me out of the house.
“l forced my wife and children to use the buckets for long calls before l began using it to smear the house.”
The magistrate then handed him a 3-month suspended sentence and issued him a stern warning.
“I will convict you on your own admission to three months suspended sentence. During that period, ensure you have not committed any other crime. I further warn you to stop dealing with faeces as a way of punishing others.”
