The Ministry of Livestock and Fisheries in Eastern Province has confiscated three tonnes of dressed chickens illegally imported from Malawi.

Provincial Veterinary Officer ARTHUR MUMBOLOMENA says the chickens were seized when the owner attempted to get a permit from the department.

Dr. MUMBOLOMENA says the owner breached the Animal Health Act number 27 of 2010.

The chickens have been disposed of by the Chipata Magistrates court.

Dr. MUMBOLOMENA has urged business persons who deal in livestock and livestock products to ensure they have the right documentation.
