“This is now what am telling to Wau town citizens and those selling the meat, this is a law and all state security organs are saved with the copy,” he added.

Akol said the state trade union, butchers and councilors were served copies of the orders.

“Those selling the beef should abide by this order, failure to comply with these law, they should have a choice or either leave selling beef or accept the order,” he said.
