Outrage as another rhino dies in Nakuru

Kenya loses another rhino

Confirming the incident, senior warden Catherine Wambani divulged that the carcass was retrieved but the horns were missing at the scene.

According to the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS), the 12-year-old black rhino was killed on Monday evening.

This comes after the controversial death of 11 rhinos translocated to Tsavo East National Park from Nairobi and Nakuru National Parks.

According to an inquiry into the deaths of the wildlife, the saline water in the rhinos' new home was what led to their death. Investigators further mentioned that the animals had been stressed due to acute dehydration.

The cause of all the deaths was due to multiple stress syndrome intensified by salt poisoning and complicated by the following conditions: dehydration, starvation, proliferation of opportunistic bacteria in the upper respiratory tract, gastric ulcer, and gastritis," Tourism Cabinet Secretary Najib Balala said during a press conference.

After the death, reports of the new rhino hit headlines. Kenyans took a jibe at Mr Balala who previously told Kenyans demanding his resignation to go to hell,

Under the hashtag #BalalaWajibika, a section of the public have protested the continued stay of the CS in office noting that he should tender his resignation after the tragic death.

Here are some of the reactions:
