Man mauled by stray lion


A man was on Monday, December 9, 2019, mauled by a lion in Ong’ata Rongai, Kajiado County.

The victim, identified as Simon Kipkirui, who went missing on Friday, December 6, worked as a casual labourer in the area.

Kipkirui’s employer found the lion feeding on his employee’s remains.

“Some parts of his body were scattered on the ground. His employer tried to scare away the lion but it could not leave,” Simon Tiret, the deceased brother narrated.

In a statement, Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS), urged the public to stay calm and not to venture out at night until the lion is captured.

“We are reaching out to the family of the deceased with a view to visiting and consoling with them,” part of the excerpt read.
