Mozambique has banned the import of animals, animal products, and animal by-products from Zimbabwe following a resurgence of foot-and-mouth disease in the neighbouring country. The authorities have also banned the importation of fodder for cattle, goats, pigs, and sheep. It comes days after Zimbabwean authorities confirmed an outbreak of the disease in Mashonaland Central province which borders Mozambique. Mozambique’s agriculture ministry said it would monitor the movement of animals and the banned products along the main border and points of road entry into the country. It will also carry out mandatory inspections of all cattle, goats, sheep, and pigs in the border districts.
