Two people were injured as villagers scrambled for meat from a hippo that was killed by a vehicle along Thika Road yesterday.
The hippo lay near Clayworks Factory on the busy Thika highway near Kenyatta University for several hours after a speeding vehicle hit it.
Armed with all manner of tools, passersby and local residents rushed to the scene to get a slice of the rare meat.
“I have eaten hippo meat in the past and I know how sweet it is. Let us have the meat,” a man said as he ran to the scene.
Mmmm … jerk hippo.
