KUWAIT CITY, Aug 10: The Public Authority for Agricultural Affairs and Fish Resources (PAAAFR) is expecting the Municipal Council to allocate land for it in Kabad during its next term to be distributed for the construction of livestock pens, reports Al-Rai daily. Deputy Director of Animal Resource Sector at the PAAAFR Hanadi Bastaki said the technical committee at the Municipal Council has approved the demand of the authority to allocate 2.5 million square meters for the construction of 1,500 livestock pens for sheep breeders. He went on to say some of the land will be allocated for camel breeders, applicants who meet the criteria and fulfill the conditions. She made it clear that PAAAFR has signed a contract to put in place the infrastructure in Kabad where the livestock pens will be built complete with electricity, water and drainage system. She indicated the pens are expected to be completed by 2018.

She added the mechanism of work has been developed to control all negative phenomena such as forging certificates and embezzling public funds. She stressed the authority will not hesitate to refer any suspect or forger to the Public Prosecution. In another development, sixty-four subsidized food distribution centers, affiliated to Ministry of Commerce and Industry, were closed on Saturday due to a technical glitch in the computer system of the ministry, reports Al- Watan Arabic daily quoting sources.

Sources said the administration units at the headquarters of cooperative societies where the centers are located had to put up notice boards to explain the situation to the citizens who visited the centers. Sources added several requests have been submitted earlier to upgrade the computer system being used by the ministry to distribute subsidized food items to the citizens but no concrete step has been taken until now.
