Solwezi Council dispose off rotten meat from a butchery after a tip from the public

Rural News Solwezi Council dispose off rotten meat from a butchery after a tip...

Solwezi Municipal Council has disposed off six decomposed carcasses of meat from Good Hope Butchery at Kyawama market.

Council Assistant Public Relations Manager, Esther Chirwa said the council’s public health inspector found the decomposed meat being offloaded into the Good Hope butchery.

Ms Chirwa told ZANIS in a statement today that the inspectors rushed to Kyawama Market on Wednesday afternoon after a tip off from some residents.

She said according to section 79 of the Public Health Act Cap 295 of the Laws of Zambia, no person shall bring into any market or have in his possession without reasonable excuse any food for any animal in an unwholesome state or unfit for its use.

Ms Chirwa said the law further states that any medical officer of health may seize any such food and any district secretary on the recommendation of the medical officer of health may order it to be destroyed or disposed of as to prevent it from being used.

The PRO said the butchery owner narrated that the truck developed a fault on the way to Solwezi district from Zambezi and hence, the meat became rotten due to late delivery.

She said he willingly filled in the seizure forms and allowed the council public health inspectors to dispose off the six carcasses at the dumpsite.

Ms Chirwa commended the members of the public for alerting the local authority.

She has since urged members of the community to continue keeping watch and work with the local authority as they are key stakeholders of development in the district and the nation at large

  1. Nice move but health inspectors do you check market toilets at KYAWAMA and central market they are very bad we need to tell you really.
