Nyanza Man Who Tried To Get Rich Selling Hippo Milk
There was this fascinating case where a Nyanza man was charged with selling hippo milk (unfit for human consumption) to unsuspecting consumers.
You have to understand that a hippo is one of the most violent wild animals around and is commonly found around Luo Nyanza in the many rivers that criss cross the area. A Hippo will attack without being provoked. So for starters the prosecution had a problem convincing the court that the milk the accused had sold to his clients was actually milk from a hippo. How does somebody get to milk a hippo, the judge wondered?
Locals claim that the man was using witchcraft to hold the hippo in a trance so as to milk it. Apparently Hippo milk like any other mild does not taste very different from the usual cow milk. Luckily for the defense, the judge was not as superstitious.
It is said that most of clients were school teachers who appreciated the fact that the accused man’s prices were lower than those of other milk dealers. Many of them paid him monthly to have their milk delivered.
Rumours started doing the rounds when the man’s milk business really took off and locals envious of his rapidly accumulating wealth wondered where he was getting his milk supplies from. More so when the man was a loner-type and was not known to possess any cows of his own.
When word reached the teachers as to the alleged source of the milk, they appear to have been more furious than surprised at the news and the man quickly found himself charged in a Kisumu court. But alas, it was a very difficult case for the prosecution to prove, more so when the defense was able to establish that none of the “enterprising” man’s clients had gotten sick in the long months when they had eagerly and enthusiastically consumed the milk.
