Emurua Dikirr MP Johana Ng'eno has vowed to sue the company and supplier of the poisonous livestock feeds that killed his 24 dairy cows.

The legislator lost his herd of pedigree Friesian heifers on Friday at his Kisiara farm in his constituency after the animals were fed some mineral supplements.

“I will take legal action against them for selling uncertified feeds and also for selling to me feeds that they knew are poisonous.

In her ruling, Justice Roselyne Aburili said the suspect and his wife, a sister to the deceased, had begged for leniency.

“I hereby sentence the accused to serve three years on probation for him to be counselled on anger management ... and in default he shall be brought before the court for custodial sentence,” she said.
