The citizens of Kitui West in Matinyani, Soweto suburbs yesterday woke up to a rude shock after a goat belonging to a farmer gave birth to a goat with human face in the wee hours of the morning, COUNTY DIARY reports.
The shocking incident attracted thousands of people who are still trooping and thronging to the family farm to witness for themselves the bizzare incident.
“In my long 54 years on this Earth of Moses (sic), i have never witnessed such a grosteque, perplexing incident.
How on earth can a goat give a birth to kid with the face of a human being?” Wondered a neighbour Mr Mulei reeling from shock and awe. Mulei himself who owns several goats which give birth to normal kids.
Speaking to be Press, the owner of the goat told local reporters that she is so shocked to the core by the incident and believes that God will sanitize her family from the evil and witchcraft which might have been planted by evil people.
“This is surely the work of an evil eye” she said without elaborating.
But as the perplexed villagers reel in shock and awe trying to come I to terms with the incident, Science offers an explanation;
It’s likely that the goat suffers from a congenital defect known as “cyclopia.”
According to Science, mutations and cyclopia, which can occur in humans as well as animals, “is a very rare syndrome of severe facial dysmorphism.”So there you have it – dysmorphism!
