By Chris M Bruno

KIBAALE: Kibaale district veterinary officer, Immaculate Akusekera has asked private veterinary officers in the district to register with the local government in a bid to streamline better service delivery and eliminate quack personnel.

The engagement meeting held recently at Bwamiramira community hall intended to improve on coordination and information sharing among the veterinary officers in the district.

Akusekera noted that by policy, the ministry of public service gives them a mandate to supervise private vets for effective services to farmers calling upon extension work at the sub county to work with them.

Mike Lumu Alfred, the Kibaale Principal Agricultural officer asked the private veterinary officers to exhibit a high level of professionalism while executing their work challenging them to desist from charging exorbitant fees while offering services to them.

”You should exhibit a high level of professionalism while executing your work and desist from charging exorbitant fees while offering services to farmers,” he asked.

During the open discussion, private veterinary officers appealed to the district veterinary department to supervise and monitor jerry cans together with boxes being used to transport meat and milk to ensure good sanitation and quality of the products.
