A bizarre story of a man who feeds on his late wife’s dead body has got people confused at to what could lead to the strange addiction.
Not only his wife’s corpse, the man identified as Kitu Monyoki from at Ndaluni village, Kitui county, Kenya also fed on his deceased daughter’s body.
According to reports, Monyoki has lived with two dead people in his house for some years. While his wife died in 2014, a year after their daughter died.
He disclosed that his wife had told him not to bury her remains since she would be resurrecting in nine years.
He obeyed her and kept the body for two years using strange herbs. Every morning he would lather his wife’s remains with jelly before doing the same to his daughter.
Monyoki had 7 more years to do his ritual before his wife could resurrect as she had promised when the bodies were discovered by residents without intestines.
This raised suspicion that the man must have fed on them because according to his neighbors, he had a strange diet plan which consisted of snakes, dogs and cats.
It was gathered that he would trap snakes, cut the heads off and cook them after which he eats them with much delight.
Villagers say that he constantly bought dogs for KSh 400 but never kept any at his house which led to speculations that he ate them too.
On the issue of the sudden disappearance of his wife, Munyoki told his neighbors that she had travelled to her parent’s home in Tala after a short argument.
After his arrest , the bodies were taken to the Migwani sub-county hospital’s morgue.
Attendants could not believe how the bodies were in such good condition yet not artificial chemical had been used to preserve them.
