Iziphathamandla zikahulumende weSouth Africa zith iumkhuhlane lo wenziwe ngamadada avela kwele Zimbabwe.

Umkhuhlane wenkukhu obangelwa ligciwane le H5N8 oqale eZimbabwe kumaviki ambalwa edluleyo usuqhamuke kwele South Africa.

Iziphathamandla zalelo lizwe zona zisola amadada aweZimbabwe ngokuza lalo umkhuhlane owe bird flu virus.

Ugatsha lwezokulima kweleSouth Africa luthi lumkhuhlane uqhamuke epulazini elifuya inkukhu esabelweni seMpumalanga le Free State wabulala inkukhu ezizinkulungwane ezinhlanu. Lokhu kubangele ukuthi kubulawe inkukhu ezizinkulungwane ezingamatshumi amabili lane (24,000).

Isiphathamandla senhlanganiso yebafuya inkukhu kweleSouth Africa umnumnzana Kevin Lovell, uthi lobanje kusenziwa inhlolisiso ejulileyo ngesisusa salo umkhuhlane, kabathandabuzi ukuthi amadada eZimbabwe yiwo aza lawo.

“Kubonakala ukuthi lumkhuhlane wenkukhu eZimbabwe wabangelwa ngamadada abehlala edamu eliseduze lamapulazi afuya inkukhu. Nxa kunjalo-ke kutsho ukuthi amadada lawo engaphapha aze afike kuleli. Yikho okwenza kube nzima ukwenqabela umkhuhlanelo ngoba awuhambi phansi kodwa uyaphapha.”

Ngenxa yalokhu uhulumende usemise ukuthengiswa kwenkukhu eziphilayo ezitaladeni okuyinto evame okwenziwa kakhulu emalokitshini ahlala inengi lezizalwane zeZimbabwe. Inengike selisesaba ukudla inyama yenkukhu ngenxa yalo umkhuhlane. Kodwa isiphathamandla sogatsha lwezokulima unkosikazi Mpho Maja, uthi lumkhuhlane obangelwa ligciwane lohlobo lwe H5N8 awungeni ebantwini.

“Sekube lobufakazi benhlanganiso yezempilakahle emhlabeni jikelele eye World Health Organisation bokuthi umkhuhlane we H5N8, awungeke uhlasele abantu. Kodwa-ke abafuya inkukhu kufanele bakhathazeke ngoba uyazibulala inkukhu.”

Ngesikhathi kuqhamuka lo umkhuhlane eZimbabwe emavikini ambalwa edluleyo, iSouth Africa yahle yenqabela ukuthengiswa kwenkukhu lamaqanda okuvela eZimbabwe. IZimbabwe ke layo isithethe amanyathelo afanayo ngemizamo yokuvimba kokuza kwalo umkhuhlane usuqhamuka kweleSouth Africa.

Kwele Zimbabwe lumkhuhlane wabangela ukuthi kubulawe inkukhu ezedlula izinkulungwane ezilikhulu (142,000).

Unkosikazi Maja uthi sebexwayise abalimi bonke ukuthi bevalele inkukhu zabo ukuze lumkhuhlane ungamemetheki.

“Sithemba ukuthi akusoke kube lamanye amapulazi afuya inkukhu asefinyelelwe yilo umkhuhlane, okusipha ithemba lokuthi sizakwenelisa ukuwuqeda. Yebo sisanda kuwubamba lo umkhuhlane kodwa silethemba lokuthi awukamemetheki kakhulu.”

Ingcitshi zithi kuthatha amalanga amane kusiyakwayisikhombisa ukuthi inkukhu ehlaselwe yileli gciwane iqale ukubonakala iphefumula nzima, ukukhala lokufa. Zithi kodwa ikhona eminye imihlobo yamagciwane ebird flu ahlasela abantu.
