A Kinangop farmer woke up on Tuesday to find his four cows  slashed at night by unidentified persons.

Jeremiah Karanja said the incident happened at around 3am in the cowshed of his Rwanyambo village home.

His family members heard a commotion in the compound and when they went to check what was happening, they found the cows on the ground with deep panga cuts in the neck, back and legs. Some could barely stand.

Karanja said it was unimaginable that someone could destroy his family’s only source of livelihood given that they have no grudges against anyone. He estimated his loss to be more than Sh260,000.
