I killed a Catholic priest because he sodomized me – Man tells court

A suspect linked to the murder of Reverend Father Michael Maingi Kyengo from Machakos county in Kenya, has said that he killed the Catholic Priest because he sodomized him.

Michael Muthini said he got to know the Catholic Priest who was killed and buried in a shallow grave in Makima in 2017, during a mass session he participated in at Mbingoni Catholic church.

The accused through his lawyer Kirimi Guantai claimed that before the mass began, the father beckoned and asked to see him after the mass. Muthini claimed that after the mass, he went to see him but the cleric told him that he wanted to talk to him and since he had no time, he gave him his number so they could talk over the phone.

He informed the court that father Kyengo got closer to him, started visiting, texting and calling him on regular basis. The suspect told court that the late father even took the burden of paying his college fees and provided all his basic needs.

Muithini added that while he will call the cleric ”bro”, he will respond by calling him ”My dear” or ”Sweetheart”.

The suspect said their issue began after the father visited his rented house at Gategi in Mbeere South for the first time.

Muthini said;

”In September 2019 the late father called me and informed me that he was at Mwea town and said that he was going to stay at my place overnight as it was late for him to drive for a long distance via a rough road as he was headed to Machakos."

He disclosed that after they ate dinner, he proceeded to the bathroom to clean it so that the father could take shower.Latest Post
