Nakuru County government has warned residents to be cautious of what they consume during the Christmas celebrations in order to avoid contracting diseases.
According to the Public Health Department, the caution applies to both sanitation as well as the slaughtering of animals.
“As the public goes on with the festivities, those who want to slaughter [animals] can do so at slaughter houses where we shall have meat inspectors,” said the county Public Health Officer Samuel King’ori.
Mr King’ori warned that consuming uninspected meat is a risk as one can contract deadly diseases.
Uninspected meat may cause consumers to contract the deadly Anthrax, not to mention that Nakuru has in the recent past struggled with a cholera outbreak.
