Residents of Matungulu are in shock after nine cows were stolen and slaughtered in Matuu Estate Matungulu West, Machakos County.
They only woke up to intestines, hoofs and other parts of slaughtered animals scattered all over.
Residents led by Dominic Masaku have complained about the increasing theft of stock and called upon the authority to intensify patrols on the same.
We are requesting the government to increase the number of officers to tame the increasing cases of theft of animals,” Masaku said.
Area Sub-County Police Commander Kipkemoi Kirui told journalists that they have deployed police officers to patrol the affected area.
The residents allege that the stolen meat is taken to Nairobi’s Eastlands.
The thieves are believed to have stuck at night and are on the run.
