Deputy President William Ruto was given a goat painted in his United Democratic Alliance (UDA) colors during his campaign in Naivasha on Sunday, November 7.
UVPK expressed its displeasure with the act, claiming that painting animals is inhumane, as defined by Kenya's Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act Cap 360 Part II Section 1-4.
As a result, the union pleaded on political leaders to support animal rights and lead the fight against animal abuse.
Animal owners who violate animal welfare and freedoms will be penalized, according to Mulembani.
The union also encouraged the National Assembly and the Ministry of Agriculture to speed up the passage of the Animal Welfare and Protection Bill 2019, which would put an end to the widespread practices that cause animals pain and suffering.
