Mu­nic­i­pal­ity must su­per­vise im­ported food: Coun­cilor

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL - By Me­shaal Al-Enezi

Deputy Chair­man of the Mu­nic­i­pal Coun­cil Me­shal Al-Juwaisri in­sisted that it is nec­es­sary for the Mu­nic­i­pal­ity to su­per­vise im­ported food that en­ters the coun­try that is not fit for hu­man con­sump­tion. He found it strange for an en­tire ap­pa­ra­tus to fol­low up tons of im­ported food that en­tered the coun­try with­out the knowl­edge of in­spec­tors. He asked Awqaf and Is­lamic Af­fairs Min­is­ter and State Min­is­ter for Mu­nic­i­pal­ity Af­fairs Mo­ham­mad Al-Jabri and Mu­nic­i­pal­ity Direc­tor Ah­mad Al-Man­fouhi to take to task those who bring in tons of spoiled food. He said the mu­nic­i­pal­ity is the safety line for con­sumers’ health, in­clud­ing cit­i­zens and ex­pats.

Sep­a­rately, Mu­nic­i­pal Coun­cil mem­ber and chair­man of the tech­ni­cal com­mit­tee Fahd Al-Sane did not like a state­ment by the food and nutri­tion author­ity’s chair­man Essa Al-Kan­dari about mo­bile food lab­o­ra­to­ries, and con­sid­er­ing them as his achieve­ment. “I in­tro­duced this issue dur­ing my cur­rent mem­ber­ship in the Mu­nic­i­pal Coun­cil, on Novem­ber 14, 2013 to be ex­act,” he said. He added that it is not ac­cept­able for the author­ity’s chair­man to take the ku­dos for the pro­posal and ig­nore oth­ers. Sane asked Kan­dari to cor­rect mat­ters and hold those who made him make this state­ment re­spon­si­ble.
