SAFCEI Calls for Urgent Action on Live Animal Transport

According to reports from the Southern African Faith Communities Environment Institute (SAFCEI), 19,000 cattle on a Kuwaiti ship headed from Cape Town, South Africa for Iraq were kept in appalling circumstances on 20 February 2024. It was previously reported that some of the animals were dead among the living and several of them had to be put down. Braam Hanekom, the chairperson of SAFCEI, has insisted on a comprehensive analysis of the farming methods and value chain involved. He goes on to say the following............ INSERT [BRAAM] The Southern African Faith Communities Environment Institute, SAFCEI, is a multi-faith environmental justice organisation which supports faith leaders and their communities in Southern Africa to raise awareness, gain skills and take action on eco-justice, sustainable living and climate justice. Hannekom says the owners of the ship are in violation of the Animal Protection of 1962 and calls on the South African government to act immediately to stop the harsh, inhumane, and unethical treatment of animals raised for human consumption.
