Zambia Medicines and Regulatory Authority (ZAMRA) has disclosed that 11 people of Kapiri Mposhi District in Central Province have been arrested for operating a pharmacy without a Certificate of Registration.
ZAMRA Senior Public Relations Officer Christabel Illiampu tells Money FM News that this is contrary to Section 14(1) of the Medicines and Allied Substances Act No. 3 of 2013.
Ms. Illiampu says this came to light during a surveillance routine inspection directed towards curbing the sale of medicine and allied substances in unregistered outlets undertaken by the ZAMRA inspectors, in collaboration with the Drug Enforcement Commission Officers.
“The eleven have since been released on Police Bond and will appear in court soon,” she revealed.
