CHIEF Singani has warned Choma residents against buying meat from market places following the outbreak of corridor disease in his chiefdom.
In an interview, chief Singani said he was disappointed that carcasses of animals that die from corridor diseases were taken to the market for sale.
“I’m warning Choma residents against buying meat from market places following the outbreak of corridor diseases in my chiefdom. I have noticed that authorities are not doing anything to stop people selling this condemned meat to unsuspecting customers,” chief Singani said.
He appealed to relevant authorities in the district to ensure that livestock farmers were not dubiously allowed to sell carcasses of animals that die from corridor disease.
“I am concerned with the health of residents in my chiefdom, especially those in town who are not aware of the meat they are consuming. There is a corridor disease in my chiefdom so I am calling on the Department of Veterinary to help farmers curb the outbreak,” said chief Singani./SM/JC
