What you need to know:

  • Shaddy, as he is commonly referred to on the dusty streets of Nairobi’s Sunton Estate, is a mutura seller. Mutura, also known as African sausage, is a popular roasted delicacy made from cow, goat, or lamb intestines stuffed with a mixture of minced meat, tripe, cooled blood, onions, pepper, and salt.
