According to the Naivasha District Veterinary officer Dr Peterson Njiru, the taskforce is aimed at looking on possible ways to curb the rising cases of donkey theft.
Njiru said all the stakeholders including KWS, Public health, Provincial administration and his department have been involved in taskforce.
“At least four donkeys are slaughtered every week and we hope that the taskforce will help unearth the mystery behind this illegal trade,”
He said the culprits were taking advantage of donkeys loitering at night to slaughter them and called for a convenient place to keep them.
Though no one has so far been arrested, the officer said they were working closely with security organs to investigate the cases.
One more donkey was left with injuries as it escaped from the brutal hands of the unscrupulous traders.
