Donkey meat hurts business in Naivasha
The sale of meat in Naivasha town has apparently dropped by over 50 per cent in the last three days following reports of sale of donkey meat.This has led to a boycott by slaughterhouses and butchery owners, who are angry that the perpetrators of this act operating freely, yet they are being wrongly blamed. They defended their business saying they were selling genuine meat and called on police and public health officers deal with the issue.
The butchery owners were upset last week over the discovery of four donkeys that were found slaughtered, with the owners alleging the meat had been sold in the local butcheries. The traders said their meat was certified and duly inspected by public health officers. The chairman of Naivasha Butcheries Welfare Association, Douglas Ng’ang’a said their customers had dropped after the report on the donkey meat.
