An unknown number of thieves are said to have broken into a house in Muteng’uri village, Nyandarua constituency, and all it took to gain access was a dish of githeri.

The burglary which happened over the weekend left area locals shaking their heads after it emerged that the family dog which was guarding the homestead had been mollified with a dish of githeri by the thieves.

Apparently, the canine was so full of githeri that it could barely bark as the thieves moved from one house to the other in the homestead.

“Nilikuwa natoka kanisani kama kawaida nikashanga kupatana na sufuria ya githeri, hapo nikaona milango yote imefunguliwa. Nikangundua kuna watu walikuja wakapee mbwa githeri wakapata nafasi ya kuingia kwa nyumba na wakachukua manguo yote,” said a family member who spoke to Hot 96 radio.

The family is now counting losses after the thugs made away with valuables of unknown value.

The canine has now earned the nickname Githeri Dog on social media.
