A man in Kathonzweni, Makueni County has been disarmed after he deflated a Catholic priest’s car tyres alleging that he caught the clergyman red-handed with his wife.

According to the police report, Thomas Kimeu Mulwa, a licensed firearm holder arrived at his house in Kathonzweni at 2 am on Thursday morning.

Mulwa said he found a strange vehicle parked in his compound and on inquiring about its ownership, one of his servants told him it belonged to Father Wesonga Maloba of Gatundu Parish.

“He knocked on the door but there was no response. He was told by his servant that the vehicle belonged to a Catholic priest…In the process, he fired four rounds of 9mm deflating the four tyres, alleging that the priest was sleeping with his wife,” said the police report.

Further, the police said the man’s wife, Susan Kivuva, refused to open the door to let him in.

“The scene was visited by National Police Service officers from Kathonzweni sub-county. The firearm, make Ceska, has been repossessed with two empty magazines and 13 live ammunition,” said police.
