The Pafuri-Sengwe inaugural Joint Park Managers Committee (JPMC) met on the 14thof June 2018 at Swimuwini Camp, Mabalauta, Gonarezhou National Park. The JPMC comprised of officials from Mozambique, South Africa and Zimbabwe. It is a combination of managers from Protected Areas and local communities’ representatives. The forum is an attempt by the GLTP Joint Management Board to facilitate interaction of the three GLTFCA partner countries at a local level. The JPMC is expected to become the conduit to joint operations and law enforcement, tourism and community development.
At this meeting, it was noted that the creation of an enabling policy environment is a key in implementing joint operations and unlocking tourism potential of the TFCA. It was also highlighted that the success of this forum rests on the official gazetting of a border crossing point between Zimbabwe and South Africa in the GLTFCA region.

Two serial cyanide smugglers and a habitual poacher were nabbed last week by a crack-unit of game rangers from Zimparks aided by members of the police force. Through intelligence, the crack-unit first apprehended one of the country’s most wanted poachers followed by the cyanide smugglers within a period of two days.
Zimparks spokesperson Mr Tinashe Farawo confirmed the development.
“We raided them at Guruve Hotel in Mashonaland Central province, Daniel Chidawo and Meadow Kamuchenje (ages not given) were found in possession of 7kg of cyanide poison,” he said.
“Jabulani Ndengeza (age not given) was arrested early this year after being found in possession of 20kg of ivory,” he said.
