THIEF STICKS MEAT ON BODY
A daring meat thief has left Kenyans laughing after he was caught with goat meet strapped to his body. The man draped in Maasai shukas was trying to get away with his not so well calculated crime.
In a viral Instagram video the guy was cornered and stripped by police officers forcing him to reveal where he got the meat. Only identified as Aloice, the meat bandit had initially covered his sins using a green cover up, a jacket and a t-shirt.
He slowly took off his clothes and the meat which was tied to his skin popped up. Aloice had used a rope to tie the food around his body. The officers, completely puzzled, questioned where he got the goat meat from and the man’s answer was hilarious; “I got it on the mountain. The goat was alone, it did not have an owner.”
