Owning a dog in Nairobi to cost KES 3,000

09 October 2015, 12:51 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - A new bill being prepared by the Nairobi County Assembly will see dog owners forced to pay a fee of KES 3,000 to keep their pets.

The Bill is already in its final reading and will see Nairobians forced to part with KES 2,000 for a license as well as KES 1,000 for a tag to be provided by the County government.

The Bill seeks to ensure that stray dogs which exist in many estates in the city are eliminated.

It also looks to ensure that cases of stray dogs biting innocent members of the public are reduced.

Also of concern has been the enormous noise the dogs usually produce.

" The dogs have become both a human and environmental hazard and there needs to be regulation to ensure that this problem is nipped in the bud," Kayole South MCA Elizabeth Manyala who is a sponsor of the Bill explained to News24.

Governor Evans Kidero has previously decried the high population of stray dogs in the city and asked that they be controlled.

Persons found to be in contravention of the new law, it it passes will be fined as much as KES 5,000 for the violation.
