Police intercept 800 kilos of uninspected meat

18 May 2015, 12:16 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - Police in Nyeri intercepted more than 800 kilograms of uninspected meat packed in a probox car outside Sawaland butchery in Majengo slums, Nyeri on Monday morning.

The meat was to be sold at butcheries within Nyeri town, according to area assistant County Commissioner John Marete.

Marete said four suspects have been arrested in connection with the crime.

While briefing media at Nyeri Central Police station, Marete said police were informed by members of the public who said they saw blood leaking from the car, accompanied by a foul smell.

“Police officers got a tip from the public and they responded rapidly. We appreciate Nyeri residents’ efforts to work closely with the authorities,” said Marete.

The meat was packaged in black polythene bags and buckets.

Senior public health officer, Joseph Macharia Kibicho said the mode of packaging was illegal and contrary to meat transportation regulations set in the Public Health Act.

“We have established that the meat was slaughtered in a bush instead of a slaughter house. The suspects were putting public health at risk. We have also established that the Sawaland butchery had no business permit,” explained Kibicho.

He added that intensive inspection will be mounted in the region considering that there is a cholera outbreak in the country and that Nyeri County is expecting hundreds of visitors for the beatification ceremony of Sister Irene Stefani.

He further divulged that three people were last week handed a one-month jail term for hawking food without a licence.
