11 September 2019

UGANDA - Retail prices of beef and chicken have skyrocketed in Lira Town due to shortage of livestock, Daily Monitor has established.

The prices of goat meat and beef have risen to Shs14,000 and Shs12,000, up from Shs12,000 and Shs10,000 respectively.

"Right now, there is shortage of livestock and chicken in the market because farmers are not willing to sell their animals and birds," Mr Peter Oteng, a trader, says.
