A Househelp has been Mauled to Death by Employer’s Dog in Malindi town in Kilifi County.
Roselyn Nafuna, 39 was reportedly attacked by her employer’s dog as she went about her chores at the house in Moriema.
Police say that she had opened the door of the porch before the dog, a South African Boerboel famed for its well developed muscles and a strong bone structure devoured her.
“A night guard at the home identified as John Siria, reported hearing the woman’s distress screams as she was being mauled by the beast,” said the DCI.
“He rushed to the scene and restrained the dog, before helping Nafuna who was lying on the floor. According to the guard, the deceased said that she felt fine and would go back to the house by herself,” the DCI further stated.
She was unfortunately found dead by the day guard Anoty Katana when he reported for duty.
“Detectives based in Malindi who were among the first responders to the incident, established that the deceased’s body had multiple wounds occasioned by the dog’s bites,” said the DCI.
Investigations into the unfortunate incident have since been launched.
Meanwhile, the body of the deceased is currently preserved at the Star hospital mortuary, awaiting post mortem.
