Meat traders appeal to gov’t over animal theft

Meat traders have asked the government to stiffen security to end the habit of animal theft in the country.

The appeal was made by traders under their umbrella body called Kampala Burcher Traders Association –KABUTA while thanking the President for advising NARO officials about modern techniques of farming like zero-grazing, to promote beef and milk production in the country.

“We thank the President for the advice on improving beef and milk production in the country, but we ask him to task security organs to also stiffen security on the issue of animal theft. It is one of the reasons why there is still low meat production since farmers are being frustrated by cattle thieves," says the chairperson of KABUTA, Musa Ssenabulya.

President met NARO technocrats at State House in Entebbe last week (on 15 March 2022) with the aim of devising ways of improving trade through the promotion of beef and milk production, as well as research in the country.
