Over 100 Goats And Sheep ”Arrested” In Mfantseman Municipality

The Ghana Police in collaboration with the Mfantseman Municipal Assembly in the Central region have arrested over 100 goats and sheep in some of its Communities.

The exercise is part of the Environmental Health Department of the Assembly’s agenda to clear all free-range animals that are contributing to the poor sanitation in the Municipality. The exercise was done in over ten Communities.

In an interview, the Mfantseman Municipal Environmental Health Officer, Eric Mensah said, the assembly conducted the swoop after several announcements warning residents to cage their domestic animals in the fence.

According to him, domestic animals such as goats and sheep always defecate indiscriminately in the street, a situation that doesn’t promote sanitation.

He said owners of the animals will be required to pay a fee before the animals are released to them with a strong warning to always keep them in the manger.

The Environmental Health Officer said if the owners refuse to come for them in two weeks’ time, the Assembly will be forced to sell them cheaply.

He warned the residents to stop attacking them anytime they leashed animals roaming in the Street.

It is announced the exercise will be carried out every two weeks to make sure sanity is improved in the Communities.
