"Nini Mbaya na Kakamega?" See What was Being Transported As a Parcel That Left Netizens Talking

They say wanders shall never end. Indeed they shall never. Residents of Kakamega are still in shock after a snake which was being ferried as a parcel was killed by a boda boda rider. The owner of the parcel and the snake is said to have disappeared immediately the parcel fell of the vehicle she was in.

Even as some communities continue to hold on to some cultural practices that they have inherited since time immemorial, some have been discredited by the test of time and seen irrelevant. Well, if you don't know, it is said convincingly that some people in the western part of Kenya keep animals like snakes, frogs and tortoises for ritual and cultural beliefs.

The boda boda rider who killed the snake said that although he knew the consequences of his action, he had no otherwise but to kill it.

The Boda boda rider speaking to a K24 reporter revealed that it is a taboo to kill home kept animals used for ritual practices since the owner can easily kill you if he/she finds the remains of his/her "pet". Locals have been urged to remain alert and be educated to eradicate such beliefs in the society.
