Two People In Possession Of Donkey Meat Arrested In Kenya

Reading Time: 1 minute

Police arrested two suspects who were found slaughtering donkeys at a thicket in Kiambu County, central Kenya and recovered over 30 fresh animal carcasses.

Patrick Muiruri, 29 and Elizabeth Wangeci, 32, were arrested, and two vehicles used to transport the flesh in gunny bags impounded.

This followed a raid at the scene of the slaughter, where the beast of burden is slaughtered before finding its way to butcheries and meat spots in Nairobi.

After slaughtering the animals, the unscrupulous traders extract boneless meat from the animal's carcass, sold exorbitantly to meat lovers in the city, and disguised as beef fillets and other boneless chops.

"No flesh is left to waste as the traders also package the donkey intestines, kidneys and other internal organs which are sold to outlets dealing in popular roadside delicacy," said the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI)

The raid follows numerous complaints by residents in Limuru and its environs on the disappearance of donkeys which detectives have since established find their way to the dinner tables of hapless city residents.

The two suspects are currently in custody and being processed for arraignment.
