MBABANE – The Council, on the other hand, says there is no crime in keeping chickens in the city including the suburbs but there is a specified number to keep and no ‘cocks’.

Sinda Mabuza, Director of Environmental Health Services, said most people were aware that they can keep chickens in their homes in the city, but they should not exceed 12 chickens.

"The same thing applies to dogs, people should keep their dogs indoors because if we find them roaming the streets and posing danger to society, we have the instrument to shoot them thus they will find themselves without dogs," said Mabuza.
