Municipality cancels 1,923 food delivery permits over violations

KUWAIT: Kuwait Municipality Director-General Ahmad Al-Manfouhi announced yesterday the cancellation of 1,923 food delivery permits for violations of health requirements. In a press release, Manfouhi affirmed that this decision came within the framework of the executive mechanism for the service of selling and delivering food orders via an electronic system with the need to adhere to the required terms and conditions.

He stressed the incorrectness of information that circulated on social media alleging that the number of people authorized to practice the delivery service exceeded 8,000 workers, indicating that the permits issued by the municipality are subject to strict control. “We will not hesitate to cancel the permit of those who are not committed to the implementation of the Ministry of Health guidelines,” he added. – KUNA
