Hungry Lion has committed to work closely with Government to mitigate the cholera situation in Lusaka and avoid further infections.
Hungry Lion Country Manager Busu Mpepo says the aim of all businesses should be to assist the government to stop the momentum and spread of the outbreak.
Mr. Mpepo has confirmed that only 3 out of the 30 Hungry Lions in the country were temporarily shut-down for disinfection and sanitization but should be trading soon again.
He further says none of the other outlets have been affected, but as an extra precaution, Hungry Lion has sent all employees for food handlers tests and certification, even though they have previously been certified.
Mr. Mpepo says to avoid bacteria entering its outlets in Lusaka, employees are being equipped with hand sanitizers at the staff and customer entrances as well as informing both customers and employees on cholera prevention and treatment.
This is contained in a statement issued to ZNBC News in Lusaka.
