John Matipei, 42, a teacher from Kajiado who escaped a hyena attack by biting its nose will today visit Kenya Wildlife Service to seek compensation.
Matipei met the Hyena during Valentine as he fetched water for his cattle. The Hyena landed on his chest making it a matter of life and death.
Although the Hyena had mauled part of his thigh, the teacher was determined and fought his way to safety.
He was hospitalized for a month and he can now return to his duties although he will be making regular checkups until full recovery.
Speaking on Thursday, the teacher said that he has lagged behind in the syllabus. Accompanying Mr. Matipei will be his wife and Kajiado Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) secretary Elly Korinko.
