Uhulumende wakwele South Africa usekhuthaze abalimi abafuya inkukhu esabelweni seLimpopo esingcelelane leZimbabwe ukuthi baqaphele umkhuhlane wenkukhu osanda kuqhamuke eZimbabwe.

Linkuthazo ilandela inyathelo likahulumende lokumisa ukuthengwa kwenkukhu, amatshiyane, inyama yayo lamaqanda eZimbabwe ngemva kokuba iZimbabwe ibike ukuqhamuke kwegciwane le H5N8 (bird flue) eliyingozi kakhulu empilweni yenkukhu kanye lebantwini.

Umphathintambo wogatsha lwezokulima kwele South Africa, uMnu. Senzeni Zokwana, utshele abezindaba ukuthi uhulumende ufuna ukuthatha wonke amanyathelo azakwenza ukuthi igciwane leH5N8 leli lingacini selimemetheke langena kweleSouth Africa

“Abafuya inkukhu emngceleni weLimpopo bakhuthazwa ukuthi bangavumeli amatshiyane abo loba inkukhu zizulazule phandle loba zihlangane lenyoni, ngoba leligciwane limemethekiswa kakhulu zinyoni nxa zingahlangana lenkukhu. Okungenziwa yikuthi inkukhu zihlale zivalelwe.”

EleSouth Africa selethule isinqumo sokwenqabela ukuthengwa kwenkukhu laloba yini okuvela enkukhwini okuthengiswa eZimbabwe. Lokhu kulandela imibiko yokuthi leligciwane selibangele ukufa kwamakhulu enkukhu esabelweni seMashonaland East.

Ngakolunye uhlangothi isiphathamandla senhlanganiso yabafuya inkukhu eyeSouth African Poultry Association, uMnu. Kevin Lovell, uthi besabela ukuthi nxa leligciwane lingamemethekela kwele South Africa bengalahlekelwa yizigidi zenkukhu.

“Ukuhlasela kwaleli gciwane kungahlukumeza kakhulu emapulazini afuya inkukhu. Ngaphezu kwalokho kungabalomthelela omubi kakhulu ngoba kungaphazamisa ukuthengiswa kwenkulu lokuphuma kuzo elizweni jikelele.”

Akusavunyelwa ukuthengisa inkukhu zeZimbabwe kwele South Africa leBotswana.

Lobanje isilinganiso senkukhu lokuphuma enkukhwini okuthengiselwana phakathi kweZimbabwe lakweleSouth Africa kungekho kunengi kakhulu, uhulumende uthi ukumemetheka kwalo umkhuhlane, omemethekiswa njalo zinyoni ezilawo, akudingi nkukhu ezinengi ukuze uqale ukuhlasela.

UZokwana uthi uhulumende wakhe uselaye ukuthi bonke abalamapermit okuthenga inkukhu lokuphuma kuzo eZimbabwe bawabuyise kugatsha lwakhe bazaze bawaphiwe sekuphele lo umkhuhlane.

“Njengelizwe silomlandu wokubona ukuthi konke ukudla okungena elizweni kulungele ukudliwa ngabantu. Ukuthike la amapermit azobuyiselwa nini kubaniniwo kuzokuya ngokuthi kuthatha isikhathi esingakanani ukuqeda lumkhuba wokuthi bakhona abanye abathi loba besazi baqhubeke bengenisa elizweni inyama yenkukhu ezilomkhuhlane lo.”

Ingcitshi zithi leligciwane liyabahlasela labantu ikakhulu izisebenzi ezifuya lezi inkukhu. Labo-ke abahlaselwe yileli gciwane babanjwa ngumvimbano, ikhanda, umphimbo, ubuhlungu bemisipha kanye lesihlabo.
