There was drama on the interwebs after a goat paid a courtesy call to the sick owner who was admitted at a hospital in Kitui.
According to images shared online, a goat is seen in the Kitui Hospital wards where the sick patients among them the owner of the said goat have been admitted.
“The man, yet-to-identified, recently got ill and was admitted to a local hospital. His goat visited him in the hospital to wish him a quick recovery, at least we can guess that for now,” a source told this writer.
According to photos seen by KenyanBulletin, the animal first went to the reception area. It was then directed to the ward where its owner was admitted.
What we could, however, not establish is whether somebody took the goat to the hospital or it arrived on its own. Some were convinced that the goat was taken there by someone, perhaps upon the request of its owner, while others claimed that such things are normal in Kitui.
Considering this is not the first strange incident to be reported in the county, Kenyans had a lot to say on social media.
Mickey Mulinge: “Underline the word Kitui, it won’t surprise you anymore.”
Danyell Sabila: “What have we not seen in Kitui?”
Daniel Ngure: “Stage managed. Marketing manager of a witchdoctor doing well in their job.”
Sunday Steve: “We should now sell Kitui to Nigeria. We have seen enough already.”
Kennedy Musoke: “Those are not animals I swear.”
Gathenge Gakungu: “If you look carefully, you will see it is not a goat.”
Naf Michuki: “The animal is sending a sending a message to the human beings that always value your friends.”
Last month, a Kitui man who was reportedly bitten by a snake in his car has said his health is in a stable condition. David Musyoka was driving along Mui Road when a snake fell on top of his car after untangling from a bird that was flying high above his car.
In an interview, an employee of the Kitui County government narrated that his attention was drawn when he heard the snake falling on top of his car.
“I heard something fall on the roof of my car and when I peeped, I saw a snake making its way into the car,” he explained.
After being bitten by the venomous snake, he said he ran out of the car to the Kwa-Mbugu area, less than a kilometer away, with the snake stuck on his arm.
It is here that he says some people helped kill the snake before he was rushed to Mwingi Level VI Hospital for medical attention.
Musyoka remarked that after killing the snake and before they could burn it, the eagle mysteriously showed up, picked the dead snake, and flew away with it.
