A middle-aged man and his lover, a form two girl, were caught on Wednesday evening caught red-handed engaging in illicit sex at a local lodging.
Villagers said the lovers hail from Bosoti village in Kenyenya, Kisii County.
A witness Catherine Nyaboke said she spotted the man Francis Onsongo entering the lodging with the girl Agnes Bitutu.
"I was returning home from Kenyenya shopping centre when I saw Onsongo with Agnes holding hands entering the lodging facility. I immediately mobilized members of the public and stormed the facility only to find the two engaging in sex," she noted.
Mrs. Nyaboke said Onsongo tried to attack members of the public in vain.
"Angry members of the public apprehended the two and beat them tirelessly before they were surrendered to Kenyenya police station," she said.
A local chief Zachary Onderi said it was shameful for the man to engage in illegal sex with the schoolgirl.
"It is shocking that Onsongo has been having an illicit affair with Agnes for the last 2 years. Onsongo will face the law to serve as an example to other men," said Onderi.
He warned school girls against boycotting school to engage in sex with old men.
