Donkeys used in anti-corruption and anti-poaching campaigns

30, Mar 2015

Nairobi woke up to an interesting display along the streets in the central business district. Donkeys walked down the streets in an apparent campaign whose agenda soon became only too clear. The donkeys were painted in red with messages raging from anti-corruption, anti-poaching to those against the members of parliament implicated in sexual allegations. Activist Boniface Mwangi on his twitter handle says an unidentified person shared the images with him and assured him that a veterinary doctor was involved in the whole process. He says thus that the donkeys are safe and the paint used does not contain lead. This follows various queries about the usage of donkeys in the campaign instead of human beings.
