A man in Kenya has cut his manhood due to his inability to get a girlfriend.
A 25-year-old Kenyan man from the Kirinyaga County, Leonard Kimotho, caused a stir in his community when he chopped off his own penis on January 1, 2016, (New Year's day), in protest for being turned down by the women he was trying to date, reports Tuko.co.ke.
Kimotho, who is said to find it difficult to get a woman for himself, decided to take that drastic step since he believed his manhood was useless to him and as such, should be blamed for his inability to get a woman.
So while others including his friends and family were celebrating the beginning of another year, Kimotho used a sharp knife to cut off his weapon.
His parents quickly summoned a local chief, Emmaculate Njoka, to assess the damage that their son had caused to himself and the distress he had brought them.
“A family from Kiorugari called and informed me their son had chopped off his manhood. They say after secretly performing the act on himself, he rushed out of the house while bleeding profusely.
They carried him and his severed manhood in a polythene bag to hospital. Upon reaching the facility, doctors advised the family to take the victim to Kerugoya Level 4 Hospital since his condition was severe.
The doctors at Kerugoya Level 4 Hospital have said they will try their best to reattach the manhood,” Njoka said.
It is reported that Kimotho, a bachelor, had hoped to be in a relationship but all his efforts to get a girlfriend could not bear fruit, hence his resolve that his manhood was useless if there was no woman who was interested in him.
