The government has halted the importation of pigs and their products as well as pig feeds from South Africa as the Mpumalanga Province in that country has been hit with African swine fever that infects pigs. The South African Veterinary Authorities reported the outbreak of the disease on January 13, this year also alerting other countries.

The public is advised to be on the look out for any signs of the ASF in their domestic pigs. According to Dr Motshegwa, there have never been any recorded cases of ASF locally even though the disease exists regionally.
