She said she opted to rent a house for his brother near Bungoma Airstrip on Monday, May 28, for his own safety but on the night of Thursday, May 31, he was attacked by two hooded men who broke into his house.
“They tortured him from 10pm to 4am mostly attacking his private parts and left him for dead, his manhood is severely damaged according to the doctors report,” said Ms Omondi.
She says the landlord is solely to blame for the attack that has seen her young brother nursing serious injuries.
Contacted, Mung’ala the landlord denied the allegations of sending goons to attack the victim.
“I am not mad. I only asked the tenant to rent another house for her brother because he was spoiling my sister and when they complied I was happy. Why should I then go ahead to send goons into attacking him?,”
“I have also reported the matter at Bungoma police station because my tenant is maligning my name, I want her to substantiate her claims, I won’t sit down and watch as my name is being dragged in mad,” Mung’ala went on.
