The Lilongwe City Council (LCC) has today closed fast food restaurant KFC in the capital city due to lack of proper waste management.
Mayor of Lilongwe Councillor Juliana Kaduya paid a surprise visit at the KFC premises where she found waste disposal malpractice which threatens the health of people.
According to the council, the Mayor during the visit instructed for a temporary closure of the premises until all is rectified.
This is the second time that KFC has shown failure to adhere to proper waste management disposal and hygiene practices.
A similar incident occurred last year in April when the Lilongwe City Council inspected the eatery and further instructed for a temporary closure.
