In Limuru, Kiambu County, two suspects have been arrested after they were found in possession of donkey meat and its skins.
The duo was arrested after a team raided a five -acre forest in Ndeiya where the suspects are alleged to have been slaughtering the animals under unhygienic conditions , before selling their meat in nearby meat outlets.
Police believe that more than 100 donkeys are slaughtered inside the forest every night. They also recovered the donkey skins that had been lined up for exporting by the suspects.
Public health officers are currently awaiting a court order that will allow them to dispose the recovered meat and donkey carcasses found in the scene.
