Botswana, eswa­tini ban SA meat

The East African - - OUTLOOK -

Botswana and the King­dom of eswa­tini have sus­pended meat im­ports from South Africa.

The sus­pen­sion is due to the the out­break of the highly con­ta­gious foot and mouth dis­ease, which was de­tected in a north­ern dis­trict of Lim­popo prov­ince.

eswa­tini, which is heav­ily re­liant on South Africa for food, and Botswana — a large beef ex­porter to the EU — join Namibia which had sus­pended im­ports. Zim­babwe is re­ported to be in the process of ban­ning af­fected meat and live­stock im­ports from South Africa.
