The Member of the Executive Council (MEC) in the Gauteng Provincial Government, Faith Mazibuko confiscates expired products at Roots Butchery in Eyethu Mall in Orange Farms.
Mazibuko says the confiscated products were on shelves and were being sold to customers.
“We have discovered expired chicken livers, gizzards, necks and margarine at Roots Butchery in Eyethu Mall in Orange Farms. All these were on shelves to be sold to consumers,” she said.
MEC Mazibuko also adds that she is touring Orange Farms with PC Lt. Gen. Elias Mawela, Emfuleni Public Safety MMC, District Commissioner and various heads of traffic.
“We are educating the community about Level 4 Regulations and from tomorrow, it is compulsory to wear a mask or cover with a scarf,” she said.
MEC Mazibuko reiterates that the purpose of the tour at Orange Farms is to conduct COVID-19 awareness campaign and to enforce the lockdown regulations.
“We are joined by members from various law enforcement agencies in an effort to flatten the COVID-19 curve and to enforce the lockdown regulations,” she said.
MEC Mazibuko last week also discovered expired meat that was being sold to the public at a Redbull Butchery at Bara Taxi rank in Soweto and that led to the arrest of the owner of the butchery.
