The National Council of SPCA’s (NSPCA) announced Tuesday night that the South African Government has...once again joined hands with Al Mawashi to export thousands of .. animals, ..to the Middle East for slaughter in June this year.
Al Mawashi is a locally registered Kuwaiti company that imports livestock into the Middle East from several locations around the world, apparently without regard to what time of the year it is when the animals will be confined to crowded conditions on board ship. The company has partnered with local farmers in South Africa to ship tens of thousands of sheep and other animals and several consignments have been delivered.
The Port of East London is the only port in South Africa that handles this type of commodity, which appear not to be welcome at the other ports.
The NSPCA says that since 2019 it has been fighting for the countless animals that were, and still continue to be, subjected to the inherently cruel trade of exporting live animals by sea.
It's a disgrace. Somebody ought to be picketing outside the High Commission on Trafalgar Square.
