Stray Animals still loitering in Nakuru town

08 March 2016, 11:49 Wilshare

Nakuru - Stray animals are still loitering in the streets of Nakuru town despite Governor Kinuthia Mbugua issuing a restraining order that no animal should be found loitering in the streets.  

A spot check by the media on Tuesday revealed that stray cows, dog and goats are still loitering in some of the streets of Nakuru.

Last year governor Mbugua had ordered his enforcement officers to detain any animal which will be found loitering in the town but so far that directive has not been effected.

Interviewed local residents said that the animals had become an eyesore in the town and some were major cause of the accident when crossing the roads.

“This animals which are found on the streets of Nakuru town should be detained somewhere because they do not portray a good picture,” Joseph Gachagua a businessman in town said.

Gachagua added that loitering animals are the main reason why investors are no longer investing in the town.

He said that if Nakuru town is to become a modern city, county government ought to come up with stringent bylaws that will protect the image of the town.

“We no longer have investors who had started coming in and it is all because the county government of Nakuru has failed to protect the image of the town,” he said.

Attempt to get a comment from the county executive for environment Richard Rop hit a dead end as he did not respond to our calls.
