AHL Chemicals and Steel has pushed on the market a chemical powder to help control Malaria.
The company’s Marketing Manager, Maxwell Ngambi, has confirmed that the product is already on the market.
“Terminator is a wettable powder that AHL Chemicals and Steel has invented after years of research. It can be used for fumigation, covering both domestic and industrial purposes,” he said.

According to Ng’ambi, the product is available in 200g sachets at a price of K4,800 wholesale and
“In terms of large volumes for institutional customers our head office in Kanengo is ready for contact, otherwise the product is available in all Agricultural Trading Company (ATC) outlets countrywide,” he said.
