Lilongwe City Council has ordered the closure of Wakawaka Market and Central Poultry processing plant in area 36 with immediate effect due to lack of hygiene in the face of rising cholera cases.
The closure comes after the Mayor of Lilongwe City, Richard Banda, inspected the market and poultry establishment today
Banda said by Wednesday, no merchandise should be sold at the market and the poultry plant as fears of cholera spread in the city continue to grow.
Wakawaka Market is a popular shopping centre for city residents but lacks basic hygiene facilities.
Central Poultry on the other hand is one of the largest processors and sellers of chickens.
The poultry company breeds and rears its stock, fed from its feed mills.
The company processes, distributes and markets fresh and frozen chicken as well as commercial eggs.
