Let’s collectively battle bestiality

By By David Sonye | July 30th 2013

Kenyans who hate moral decadence and who wish to see a morally upright society are traumatised by rising cases of bestiality in the country. Some of these cases were unheard of in the African traditional setting and it was an abomination to even imagine such a thing. However, these unspeakable and despicable deeds are with us and we all bow our heads in shame whenever we read or hear about them. The issue has been complicated because ours is a ‘shame culture’ and no one is comfortable discussing such abominable practices since it may be construed to mean that one is celebrating filth or is part of the filth!

The media, however, has been diligently and unashamedly playing its role of exposing the rot in our society. Society on the other hand has been behaving like the proverbial ostrich and continues to bury its head in the sand hoping that the problem will solve itself. No, the problem will not solve itself. Society must swiftly act before the situation gets out of hand.
