Environmental Health Department of the Korle Klottey Municipal Assembly (KoKMA), have inspected some cowhouses (kraal) at Odawna and Osu, both communities in the Greater Accra Region.

The move comes following the recent outbreak of Anthrax in some parts of the Northern Region of Ghana.

In an exclusive interview with, Environmental Health Analyst, Samuel Maneen "We took it upon ourselves to inspect various kraal (cowhouses) at Odawna and Osu to see how the cows and cattle are being kept"

"Some cattlemen have followed the right procedures while others haven't"

He explained that cattlemen who are unable to mange their cows and cattles properly will loose their kraal and animals.

He also revealed notices have been served to the various cattlemen.

Mr. Maneen further explained aside serving the cattlemen notices, they have been given two weeks to respond.

Mr. Maneen also noted that KoKMA will do everything possible to ensure that the anthrax disease does not find its way to its jurisdiction.

Some cattlemen who spoke to expressed mixed feelings about the anthrax disease.

They called for more education on the anthrax disease and its effects on the cows, cattles and consumers.
