Tsetse task force for southern Africa

The African Union's Pan African Tsetse and Trypanosomiasis Eradication Campaign (PATTEC) has set up a technical task force to plan for a multi-national project to eradicate trypanosomiasis in the common tsetse belt in Malawi, Mozambique, Zambia and Zimbabwe. HOORC researcher and tsetse fly spraying monitoring specialist, Dr Casper Bonyongo will join William Shereni and David Zinyengere of Zimbabwe, and Dr Patrick Kgori of Botswana, as a member of the task force, which will begin its work the middle of this month with consultations in the relevant countries.
