Murang'a county to use live bullets against Monkeys terrorising women and girls

The Murang'a county government has opted to go for the primates with live bullets following their stubbornness. Through the Kenya Wildlife Service, the county will kill the velvet monkeys around Murang'a University of Technology using firearms. The students have been warned to be wary of the panic likely to be caused by firing of the live bullets. The primates have been alleged to wink at girls and women as well as cause damage to crops. They have also been known to raid hospitals stealing food from patients and biting the sick Murang'a county government on Tuesday, March 13, began a two day exercise in a bid to kill monkeys seducing women in the region. The ambitious initiative follows after local farmers from the area lodged numerous complaints to the Kenya Wildlife Services (KWS) after the animals constantly destroyed their farms. The county government through a paid up advertisement in local FM stations had indicated the dates when the monkeys would be hunted down in different parts of the county where the problem is rampant. Once trapped, the primates were to be relocated to Kimakia forest that borders the Aberdares mountains. But it appears the apes have refused to go away. And now through KWS, the county will kill the velvet monkeys around Murang'a University of Technology using firearms. In an official memo seen by TUKO.co.ke, the varsity management asked students and members of its staff to avoid the school farm from Tuesday March 13. Wednesday March 14, when the exercise will be undertaken. The exercise is likely to attract fierce criticism from wildlife activists. Some members of the public who opposed the programme said the initiative was a waste of tax payers' money. For many years, unconfirmed reports that have been doing rounds in Gatanga are that the animals were brought there by unknown people and released in the wild. The same sentiments have been reinforced by Paul Ndung’u Kariuki who is coordinating the monkey hunting exercise in Gatanga Sub County. Making Deep Fried Tilapia with Kachumbari: Easy Fish Recipe |e
