Kiandemi Assistant Chief Paul Gachiri has been freed on a Ksh100,000 cash bail after he was accused of stealing two dogs belonging to a pastor.

On Thursday, the Othaya law court released Gachiri on a cash bail of Ksh100,000 or a Ksh200,000 bond with a surety of similar amount for stealing the dogs valued at Ksh300,000.

Gachiri denied stealing two dogs belonging to Pastor Thomas Wahome of Helicopter Ministries.

Wahome is said to have imported the exotic breed of dogs from South Africa and decided to take the matter to court after Gachiri failed to prove the dogs were his.

Nairobi's plan to kill 50,000 dogs

Elsewhere the county government of Nairobi has received condemnation after it allocated Ksh100 million to deal with stray dogs menace in the capital.

According to the animal welfare lobby, Nairobi City County should use the funds that have been set aside for vaccination and sterilisation instead of killing the dogs.

London-based World Animal Protection said killing dogs would amount to cruelty and advised the Sh100 million City Hall has allocated for culling them be put to protecting them.

The Ksh100 million set aside to cull dogs could be used to vaccinate all dogs in Nairobi for a period of seven years at a cost of Sh300 per vaccine cycle, according to the lobby.
