Botswana is facing a serious shortage of fresh fruits and vegetables in the coming weeks following an outbreak of Asian Fruit Fly in Eastern regions of the country, an official at the country’s Ministry of Agriculture announced on Thursday.

Ministry spokesperson Geoffrey Pheko said that the ministry have this week quarantined farms and banned imports following the outbreak of the fly at Botalana, Fairfield, Seleka and AR5 farms in the Tuli Block area in Eastern Botswana.

He said restrictions had been put in place to prevent the fly from spreading. He also stated that, though the Ministry is aware of the need for local produce, controlling the pest is of primary importance.
