Detectives in Lugari, Kakamega County are investigating an incident where dogs were found devouring the body of a newborn baby on Sunday evening. It is suspected that a woman gave birth before dumping the infant in a sugarcane plantation.
According to a witness who spoke to local media, Soita Chirui, as he was walking home at around 7 pm he saw dogs scrambling on something that looked like meat. He went to his house and returned with a torch and saw a human head.
“I saw a human head. I chased the dogs away and they abandoned what turned out to be a newborn baby's body. The canines had already devoured half the body. What had been left of the body was the parts from the waist upwards,” he said.
Confirming the incident, Lugari sub-county Police Commander Bernard Ngungu, said that some residents claimed that a woman from a neighbouring village had lost her pregnancy mysteriously and police are investigating the matter.
The remains of the infants were taken by officers from Lumakanda Police Station and to Webuye Hospital mortuary.
