DP Ruto's United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party has been warned against branding animals with its party colours during their campaigns after the Sunday move in Nakuru.

The Union of Veterinary Practitioners Kenya (UVPK) in a statement released on Sunday fired a warning at Ruto's camp of what they termed as cruelty to animals for political reasons.

The UVPK has warned that the use of animals for political campaigns was against the law and that action would be taken against politicians who engaged in the branding.

"The Union has noted with concern the rise in cases of cruelty to animals for political reasons. The prevention of cruelty to animals Act Cap 360 Part II Section 1-4 of the laws of Kenya clearly stipulates what constitutes animal cruelty," read part of the statement by UVPK.

The act could land DP Ruto's camp in trouble amid their hunt for the presidency in 2022 should they ignore the warning by UVPK.
