Donkey owners sell their old animals for slaughter and the meat is then sold in Nairobi, Lari deputy county commissioner has said. “We are investigating these reports.
It is wrong and against the law for anyone to feed people meat of an animal they don’t know,” said Bernard Kinyua.
He said this when the remains of three donkeys were found in Kinale Forest Wednesday. The animals’ flesh had been removed, but the bones, heads and legs left behind.
Kinyua told residents that the public health department is on the lookout for suspicious meat, and urged Nairobi and its environs to increase surveillance.
“We urge the administrators, public health and veterinaries to help and inspect all meat imported from other counties since donkey meat and game meat are brought there (Nairobi),” he said.
