Date: June - 1954
Location: Kirimukuyu, Republic of Kenya
According to case files and official reports, a young boy named Laili Thindu who lived in a small, rural village in Kenya, witnessed an unearthly atrocity.
The eleven year old and several friends tended flocks of sheep and goats outside the village of Kirimukuyu. Over several nights the boys spotted strange lights darting about the summit of Mt. Kenya.
Having never seen such an unusual sight, the boys speculated on the nature of the lights. First, they decided that the lights must be from huge torches carried by mountain climbers ascending the peak in the darkness. Later, when the lights began to leave the mountainside and soar into space, Laili and his companions discarded their torches theory and guessed they were seeing the spirits of the dead.
Several nights later as Laili lay in bed he heard the sound of tribal drums pounding out a marriage rhythm. The tribe celebrated the marriage of a young couple that had taken place earlier that day. The throbbing drumbeat penetrated the walls of his crude hut. As he listened to them, without warning the drums suddenly stopped and outside his hut strange colors played over the countryside. Stepping outdoors he noticed the odd lights that had been appearing every night had left Mt. Kenya and now flew above Kirimukuyu. The saucer shaped lights and glowing orange balls lit up the village with intense multi colored rays.
The next morning, Laili learned from devastated survivors that most of the villagers - the men and women, dancers and children - had been roasted alive by the searing beams of light that had pulsed in waves from the mysterious glowing objects.
Weeks later the authorities in Nairobi learned of the incident from the boy and the few survivors of the conflagration. The incident was duly recorded in the government and police records and remains today in its archives of the unexplained, the decimation of an entire village by UFOs.
