Kampala Capital City Authority [KCCA] Health Inspectors working with police have arrested two butchers from Ntinda for putting chemicals in meat.
The suspects are Joseph Kayondo and a one Ssekabila.
“They were arrested today after our Public Health Inspectors found a concoction of chemicals being used at their butcheries in Ntinda,” KCCA said in a statement.
The authority is conducting a joint operation with the Uganda National Bureau of Standards [UNBS] on butcheries across the city.
The inspectors are checking the hygienic state of the meat and the butchers, structural standards of these butcheries as well as investigating meat preservation mechanisms.
