Taga says monitoring process starts at the import application stage.

“So once the consignment reaches the wharf our inspectorate teams are involved right from the start.so they go and inspect the containers and also they confiscate those that are not permitted and we hold them in storage for destruction.”

The Ministry of Lands and Mineral Resources in the past years has confiscated prohibited firecrackers sold in some shops.

Meanwhile, currently, there are a total of 125 shops throughout the country who are licensed outlets for selling fireworks.
