The Kasama Municipal Council says it will soon conduct the second phase of the dog elimination exercise.
Kasama Town Clerk Zakeyo Mbao says the local authority is working in collaboration with the department of National Parks and Wildlife in ensuring that all stray dogs are eliminated in the district.
Mr Mbao has told ZANIS in an interview today that the local authority wants to ensure that there is compliance from dog owners regarding the dog registration exercise.
And Mr Mbao has expressed concern over the lack of response from the residents in ensuring that their dogs are registered.
He added that it is a mandate for people to register their dogs as stipulated by law under the Control of Dogs Act Cap 247.
The Town clerk has since urged all residents to confine their dogs in respective premises in to ensure safety of other community members.
Mr Mbao also disclosed that the local authority eliminated 69 dogs in the first round of the dog elimination exercise.
