In the morning, mainstream media especially The Star reported that a lawyer had his hand chopped off because he wanted to rape a police officer.
A screenshot of The Star breaking news.
As time went by, several accounts of the incident began to emerge online. Some of which were police occurrence book entries.
I share those below verbatim (including the typos, errors)

The Law Society of Kenya to which the lawyer is a member has a different version altogether. According to the President of LSK Nelson Havi, the police are trying to cover up an attempted murder by a jilted lover.
“Police in Makueni are complicit in the attempted murder of Lawyer Onesmus Masaku by Policewoman Nancy Nyeri. The two are known lovers and Njeri attempted to kill him after he refused to accede to her demands for marriage. Nancy Njeri should be arrested and charged. ^POLSK”, Nelson Havi wrote.
