This woman was spotted at Maili Sita area in Bahati, Nakuru County on July 23,2017 carrying a baby and a huge load. Majority of women folk in the area are dependent on donkeys for rural transport and economy, however the soaring prices of donkeys in the region due to its high demand for meat and skin export has made it almost impossible to afford a donkey.

This woman was spotted in Maili Sita, Nakuru County, yesterday carrying a child and two huge sacks.
