Four Kenyan men arrested for selling donkey meat at Burma Market

The Kirwara Assistant Chief of Police arrested four Kenyan men for slaughtering and selling donkey meat at Burma Market, Nairobi. Zacharia Miano Muchiri is the Assistant Chief of Kirwara.

The angered residents of Kaminji village in Kirinyaga County caught suspects and handed them to police. They also set one of their vehicles loaded with donkey meat on fire. 

Zacharia told media reporters that Kaminji villagers arrested four Kenyan men. He said the arrested men were suspected donkey thieves. However, the other three suspects escaped after villagers found them slaughtering thirty donkeys close to the River Sagana. 

Assistant Chief Zacharia said they intervened when villagers wanted to set fire to the pajero vehicle as they found some of the suspects loading doney meat in two vehicles. One vehicle was a Probox, and the other was a Pajero.

However, the police found it difficult to stop the angered mob from killing the suspects. Especially, when one of the suspects, Ndirangu, confessed before the public that he sold the stolen donkey meat in the Burma market of Nairobi. He also provided information about their operation to pardon their lives. 

Meanwhile, the head of the Kaminji village, James Maina, emphasized the sensitivity of the matter by pointing out that one of the slaughtered donkeys was pregnant. They found her among the dead donkeys.

Another villager, Samual Magu Kariuki, expressed shock at how they failed to capture the remaining three suspects. He said he planned to use a bow and arrow to shoot one of the drivers before the suspect surrendered. 

Samual added that they arrested two suspects initially and later two more. He said desperately that they were still searching for the final three suspects.

The increased number of livestock theft incidents in the village has frustrated the residents. Village representative Stephen Mwuara Karanja expressed dissatisfaction and hope that this incident might discourage future thefts on behalf of the village community.
