In a brief interview on Tuesday, Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security and Nutrition Chief Information Officer Mr. Lereko Masupha told the Agency that the importation of chicken is still banned in the country until further notice saying that this will be until there are reports stating otherwise on the bird flu and the two countries have reached an agreement.
