Hunger looms as primates wreck havoc on Thika farms.

Farmers at Muguga village in Gatuanyaga ward of Thika East Sub-County are county huge losses after their crops were destroyed by monkeys.
The primates are eating everything, including maize shoots, sweet potatoes, bananas, arrow roots, cassava, avocados, macadamia nuts and pawpaw, leaving them staring at hunger, despite the looming COVID-19 crisis.
The monkeys are said to be coming from Murang’a County.
The monkeys have now started invading homes and stealing food.
"They are moving in groups of about 50s, and we fear they might harm us or our children. They are even attacking our dogs," explained one of the victims.
They have now called on the authorities to help control these monkeys before disaster strikes.
