A Nairobi man who feeds on fried cockroaches is contemplating opening a hotel that will be serving the 'delicacy' to interested Kenyans.
Geofrey Lugaye said he has been eating the insects for the last four years and has noted they have medicinal value.
In an exclusive interview, reporter Kelvin Philips Momanyi, a man who works as an artist said he once had a hotel but it was broken into and brought down by thugs.
"I would like to open a hotel so that I serve people this delicacy because it also has medicinal value and its milk is good," he said
Lukaye claimed the "milk" in cockroaches is laced with medicine that had healed his ulcers.
He envisioned serving his customers fried cockroaches, soup and milk from the insects.
He gets the insects from his house and often uses masking tape to trap and harvest and later fry them using a frying pan.
Lukaye serves his dish alongside kachumbari (guacamole) and munches it like one would enjoy his favourite fried delicacy.
The only obstacle standing between him and the anticipated hotel is capital, which he said has curtailed most of his ambitions.
Cockroaches are said be very clean and tasty insects, especially if they are fed with fresh fruits and vegetables.
They can be eaten toasted, fried or boiled.
