Operation “Ondoa Panya” has come out and targeted a new institution they deem mismanaged and corrupt. The new operation was that they would deliver the pigs heads to the hospital.

Today Operation Ondoa Panya has successfully been able to deliver 20 pig heads to Kiambu Hospital to protest the current mismanagement.
Why use pigs? Because they are historically considered not only a dirty animal but also a greedy and gluttonous. The use of the pigs is supposed to be a symbol that the management at Kiambu hospital have been corrupt in the use of the funds.
This has happened before in this country. One of Kenya’s most popular social activists in the name of Boniface Mwangi had already orchestrated search a demo when in 2013.
The demo was used to call out the MPigs that were in parliament at the time. It was a success not in that it changed policy but in the way it got people to talk about corruption, the scourge of our time.Below is another view-point about pigs that shows another side of this animals:
Wherever there’s mud or standing water, a pig will choose to eliminate only in that area. So if you keep your pigs surrounded by mud, they’ll shit everywhere, and then they will roll in it.
If you provide a pig with a smaller, limited area that’s wet, the pig will only shit in that area, and will generally remain clean, because, despite common beliefs, pigs don’t actually enjoy rolling around in their own excrement.
Because pigs are omnivores, they will opportunistically eat whatever nutritious food they encounter. This means that pigs are known for eating a lot of undesirable substances, including dead things, and rotten stuff. So that’s another reason that pigs are considered filthy.
But truthfully, dogs will eat pretty much anything that a pig will eat. (It’s just that a typical pig needs a lot more calories than a typical dog, so they’re usually more willing to eat things that humans find offensive).
