Sonko reveals plan to have dog meat market in Nairobi, Kenyans react

Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has revealed a plan that will see dog meat is available for sale and purchase in Nairobi.

While sharing video footage of a dog’s market, seemingly in a foreign country, on his Facebook page, Sonko said time was nigh to have a dog's market so that consumers will have a bite of their delicacy.

“We are in the process of identifying a market for stray dogs in Nairobi where we shall be recruiting and bringing together all the dog eating nationalities and open for them a koroga club where they'll be buying slaughtered stray dogs ready for cooking or eating,” wrote Sonko.

Dog meat is a common delicacy in countries such as China, Switzerland, and South Korea among others. In West Africa, Nigeria is among the countries that also enjoy the meat.

Many Kenyans on social media expressed their reaction to the plan. Some questioning the end motive while others expressing their outright reservations

As you ponder whether the county boss is right or wrong, here are Kenyan's reaction:

How is this funny, acceptable or relevant? Instead of addressing real issues affecting Kenyans you are here addressing unnecessary issues and by all means, is being inhumane. How is this leadership?
