“The theft of donkeys has particularly disenfranchised farmers who use the donkeys to transport proceeds from farms or fetch water from considerably long distances,” Munya said.
All four Kenyan abattoirs are now mandated to transform their donkey slaughterhouses within 60 days to handle cows, sheep and chickens, Munya said.
“Their licenses to slaughter donkeys are further revoked immediately,” he said.
Since 2016, Kenyan officials licensed four donkey abattoirs, which slaughtered a total 301,977 donkeys from April 2016 to December 2018, the report states.
