Established in 1964, Kibaha Education Centre which is 42 kilometres West of Dar es Salaam along Dar es salaam Morogoro Highway shut down its poultry operation in 2011 following a major epidemic where substantial capital was required to restore the existing very old poultry farm.
"Presently the existing components of the poultry operation are either outdated, inappropriate or require major overhaul. The chicken houses are too small for efficient production, improperly designed for birds’ safety and lack of automated feeding," the Executive Director of the Kibaha Education Centre (KEC) Dr Cyprian Mpemba observed.
According to IPPMedia.com, drinking systems and their building structure are deteriorated. Also the feed-mill, the hatchery and the generators are in poor condition and executive director said it would require a big investment to overhaul and bring again to an operable condition.
