Man loses 'transformer' over cheap Sh80 beer

In a shocking incident at a Kayole nightclub, two individuals, a security staff member doubling as a club manager and an employee were arraigned for inflicting severe bodily harm on a client’s private parts over a dispute which arose over an unpaid bill of Sh80.

The 28-year-old bouncer Festus Makori and 36-year-old waitress Jerica Muthoni were charged  for chopping off the manhood of a client while in the company of others not before court on April 16 at a club within Mihango area.

On the fateful day, the victim code named as SM, suffered the brutal mutilation of his entire genitalia, an act which has since resulted  to grievous injuries. 

The incident, according to particulars, took place at a local bar located a few meters from Kayole police precinct.  SM is reportedly said to have declined to pay Sh80 for beer he had ordered.

The said beer is alleged to have been poured by another patron, hence his refusal to cater for the bill. As a result, the waitress seized his mobile phone and alerted the bouncer, Makori. SM informed police that he was forcibly removed from the premises by the bouncer and two men, amidst threats of emasculation.

An attack ensued within the club and SM was hit with blows that rendered him unconscious. The bouncer is suspected of taking part in ejecting SM from the club, binding, undressing him and executing the cruel act while masquerading as a law enforcement officer.

SM was still unconscious when the gruesome act took place. Upon regaining consciousness, he noticed that he was severely injured and exposed while surrounded by bystanders outside the nightclub, with his assailants having locked themselves inside the premise.

A motorcycle rider who was passing by was shocked to learn that the person groaning  was familiar to him.  He rushed him to a medical facility and due to the severity he was referred to another hospital. SM was treated at Mama Lucy Kibaki Hospital.

During investigation, the bouncer claimed that their only involvement was to remove SM from the club to prevent further disruption and left him outside.

Both the suspects denied allegations before Senior Principal Magistrate Hellen Okwani at the Makadara Law Courts and requested considerate bail and bond terms.

However, the state prosecution, led by counsel Eric Musyoka, contested the request, advocating for a comprehensive pre-bail evaluation of the suspects.

Magistrate Okwani ordered the detention of the accused until July 1, 2024, when the pre-bail report is scheduled to be reviewed.
