Politburo discusses drought, FMD

The Swapo Politburo has raised concern on the twin impact of drought and foot and mouth disease in the northern part of the country.

Swap Party Secretary General Nangolo Mbuba said in a press conference “With satisfaction efforts by the government in addressing the situation, the number of vulnerable groups has been determined and the required food relief are being sourced from inside and outside the country.”

He also noted that the Politburo was informed that through concerted efforts of government, the FMD has been contained and that no new cases are being reported.
