Manyara Lifts Livestock Quarantine

10 May 2007

TANZANIA - Manyara regional authority has lifted a livestock quarantine imposed early February following an outbreak of Rift Valley Fever (RVF).

Livestock expert in the regional secretariat, Dr Elibariki Olomi, said that people were allowed to sell livestock from one place to another, but strictly forbidden to slaughter animals in such places.
