Residents of a village in Uasin Gishu County woke up to a rude shock on Monday after a 35-year-old man died in mysterious circumstances while having sex with a 50-year-old widow.
Julius Kiptoo is said to have been on a drinking spree until late night at a local bar on Sunday at Sachangwan near Eldoret International Airport before hooking up with the woman whose name could not be immediately established.
When the Nation team toured the area on Monday morning, shocked residents were trooping to a maize plantation where the duo was having their romp to view the lifeless body of the young man.
The woman narrated to detectives who arrived at the scene how the young man became obsessed with nonstop sex after swallowing a sex booster pill.
“We were headed to the house but he became impatient and demanded that we do it at the maize plantation. However, he started becoming sick in the process before dying instantly,” said the visibly shaken woman who has grown children.
She said that she later called neighbours who confirmed that the young man, who does menial jobs in the village, had died.
Police from the nearby Kiambaa Police station who arrived at the scene moved the body to the Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital (MTRH) Mortuary.
The woman was on the receiving end from irate villagers who blasted her for being a bad example to young women in the village by moving with younger men.
“This is very embarrassing. We look up to such women for guidance but they are the ones spoiling young people,” said Susan Jerotich, a resident.
