Nairobi - A Kenyan man is recuperating in hospital after his genitals were chopped off by an angry sex worker following an argument over payment.

According to The Standard, the 31-year-old victim in the Rift Valley town of Nakuru, some 250km north of capital Nairobi, was alleged to have picked up the sex worker on the streets on Tuesday at around 16:00 and taken her to his room. They later failed to agree on payment, leading to the incident.

The Star quoted a member of the Gender Recovery Centre in Nakuru as saying that the man was brought in on Monday evening. He was bleeding profusely and was taken straight to the theatre for surgery.

His condition was said to be stable and he was responding well to medication. He, however, would be in the hospital for some time as the doctors monitored his progress.

Incidences of men's genitals being chopped off are not new to Kenya.

In February, Nairobi News reported that a man chopped his genitals off and then his wife's breast in Thika after suspecting her of having an affair with his brother.
