The Kenya Veterinary Board has announced plans to set up seven new regional offices across the country . This move, according to their chairman, Mr. Christopher Wanga, will help them meet their obligations.

The board is also seeking more funds to help them set up inspectorate offices that will be used to enhance the scrutiny of professionals in the sector. The inspectorates will also help the Board ward of quack practitioners in the sector.

The board also listed a list of recommendations and proposals of amendments to the Veterinary Surgeons and Veterinary Paraprofessionals (VSVP) Act of 2011. The recommendations and amendments will help in establishing clear guidelines for the two sets of professionals.

Speaking to the press, the board’s Chief Executive, Dr. Indraph Ragwa said that the country has an estimated 2,900 registered vet surgeons and over 9,000 paraprofessionals.

A figure which, according to Mr. Indraph, shows that there are many more people in the sector working without legal credentials.
