A Kenyan man persuaded police to arrest his pet dog after it ate his rent money.

Robert Njeru, 25, of Nakuru town, took his dog to the local police station after it chewed up almost 3,000 Kenyan shillings (£20).

The farmer had left his rent money for the month on his bed in the morning when he went to work.

When he returned that night, all that remained were a few shreds of banknotes on the floor.

The furious Mr Njeru marched his dog down to the police station and demanded that officers lock up the animal.

Police reportedly refused him until he paid them 50 shillings to make it worth their while.

However on hearing about the story, the district police boss fired the police officer for accepting a bribe and released the dog back to its owner.

Local police spokesman Steven Karungu said: "It was a really stupid thing for the police to lock up a dog after being given a bribe. It degrades the police force in this area.

"It is true the dog ate his master's money, but it was because of his own carelessness, and he should deal with his problems by himself, and not involve the police."

Mr Njeru has still not forgiven his dog and has put it up for sale for 20 shillings, the equivalent of 10p.


Life is a ticket to the greatest show on earth.
