Ngungani police officers in Kitui County are on spot after allegedly injuring the private parts of a 22-year-old man. The man from Mumoni said that the officers beat him while he was in their custody.

Japheth Mutinda in an interview at a local TV station narrated what happened during the fateful day. He said his agony began when he asked a Boda boda rider to take him home after having a few drinks from a local bar.

He said the rider had agreed to take him home for a Ksh 50 fee. Midway, he claimed the rider refused to honor their earlier agreement and demanded for double pay.
