Despite the Ministry of Animal Husbandry’s declaration of a quarantine to halt the spread of Foot and Mouth Disease (FMD) in Kampala, slaughterhouse operations in the city persist without interruption. This continuation comes a week after the quarantine was implemented.

Dealers within the industry maintain their trade in beef, challenging the necessity of the imposed restrictions. Some argue that ensuring the quality of beef should be the primary focus, asserting that consuming meat from animals affected by FMD poses no harm to humans.

However, the Ministry of Agriculture, Animal Industries and Fisheries stresses the importance of adhering to the livestock quarantine in Kampala. Permanent Secretary Maj Gen David Kasura Kyomukama underscores the critical role of quarantine measures in halting the transmission of diseases like Foot and Mouth Disease.

Despite differing opinions on the necessity of the quarantine, the ministry’s emphasis on disease prevention remains steadfast.
