Authorities in Jigjiga, the capital of the Somali Regional State of Ethiopia, have begun slaughtering livestock, targeting goats that grazed along the roads.

In recent days, authorities in Jigjiga have reportedly slaughtered a number of goats in the town who were grazing on trees planted along the sidewalks in Jigjiga.

The mayor of Jigjiga, Abdifatah Ibrahim Ka’an, told the media that the animals they slaughtered were released from the town but not to their own camps.

The mayor of Jigjiga said livestock being brought into the town are causing problems for the community, and noted that they cause accidents as well as grazing expensive trees planted along the tarmac.

“It is a problem for the community, the accidents that they always cause, and they are always along the streets and grazing the expensive plants and trees that are meant to beautify the city,” he said.

There has been a lot of talk about the animals being slaughtered by the Jigjiga town administration, some criticized the administration for its actions, while others said it was a punishment for those who let their livestock roam in the city.
