The County Executive Committee Member [CECM] toured Kanyonyoo police station where he called for enhanced surveillance to eradicate the menace.  The CECM's statement came days after police in Kanyonyoo area intercepted a pick up truck carrying fresh donkey carcasses from Mwingi to unknown destination.

During the impounding, three male suspects were arrested and the carcasses taken for destruction. They will be arraigned in court to answer charges after police complete investigations.
