Unconcerned man butchers a zebra in broad daylight on the busy Nairobi-Nakuru Highway. It seems illegal game meat which is unfit for human consumption is finding its way to the butcheries. A man in Naivasha was seen stashing zebra meat in paper bag.
Naivasha is notorious for slaughtering donkeys whose meat is illegally sold to butcheries in as far as Nairobi and Nakuru.
