The Ministry of Safety and Security in the Kavango East Region has raised concern about the rise in deaths due to animal attacks in the region. Coupled to this is a rise in drowning incidents, Kavango East Governor, Dr Samuel Mbambo said.
The Police's Water guard unit in Kavango East have warned inhabitants to minimise their movements to the river especially at night. The warning followed after a 28-year-old woman was caught by a crocodile on Monday evening. The deceased have been identified as Cellestine Mashe Ndajamba and the next of kin have been informed.
