I slaughtered 1,000 cats and sold meat to samosa traders - Nakuru man admits

He confessed that he has slaughtered more than 1,000 cats

In a rather bizarre admission, he claimed that he started the business after identifying a gap in market, though he admitted that his customers were unaware of the source of meat.

Cat skin

As if selling the cat meat isn’t bad enough, he added that he has a market for cat skin and that he earns about Sh500 for every animal he slaughters.

“I tell my customers that I get the meat from Gioto (the area Nakuru dumpsite is situated) but they do not know it is cat meat,” he told reporters and town residents who thronged the station.

He was arrested while skinning a cat carcass which he had killed by slitting its throat.

Mob justice

Curious residents said they saw the “odd-looking” man at the railway line and went to see what he was doing, only to notice that he was skinning a cat.

The irate crowd proceeded to beat him up and he survived death by a whisker when police came to his rescue.

“This means most of the food being sold in Nakuru town is not fit for human consumption. The man says he has a ready market and has slaughtered hundreds of cats. This is unbelievable and frightening,” one resident said.
