27.02.2016 | Animal Transport Inspections at Highway Checkpoint

Animals‘ Angels and Taweso visit the highway checkpoint at the main highway going from Dar es Salaam to the west. Spread along 1.200 kilometers, there are five such checkpoints where regular transports as well as animal transports have to stop in order to be inspected.

During our meeting with the checkpoint inspector, two cattle transports are stopping to undergo an inspection. Yet the inspectors only check the truck’s documents, but Animals’ Angels is planning to conduct trainings at the checkpoints to ensure that, in future, the Tanzanian transport regulation will also be enforced during these inspections.
