PRESS STATEMENT BY THE MINISTER OF ENVIRONMENT WATER AND CLIMATE HON SAVIOUR KASUKUWERE ON THE POISONING OF FOUR ELEPHANTS IN ZAMBEZI NATIONAL PARK.


The Minister of Environment Water and Climate Hon Saviour Kasukuwere has condemned in the strongest terms the killing of four elephants using cyanide in Zambezi National Park recently. Cde Kasukuwere has urged Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority to work tirelessly in ensuring that the perpetrators are brought to book.

He stressed that government will not tolerate the continued decimation of the country’s wildlife by poachers using chemicals adding that all effort will be directed at ensuring that the culprits are apprehended.

He further ordered the Authority to deploy manpower in the affected area and to collaborate with other Agencies such as EMA, the Vet department, the Zimbabwe Republic Police and the Ministry of Health and Child Care.

The poachers poisoned natural salt licks in the Zambezi National Park and this resulted in the deaths of other species such as one cape turtle dove, one sand grouse and a vulture.

Minister Kasukuwere warned poachers that the long arm of the law will catch up with them and that stiffer penalties should be passed in all cases involving wildlife crime countrywide. Hon Kasukuwere appealed to communities that reside adjacent to wildlife to value the country’s wildlife heritage. He further appealed to them not to habour poachers and not to illegally keep hazardous substances without authority as they are not only dangerous to animals but also human beings.

Minister Kasukuwere urged the corporate sector to come on board and increase support for wildlife conservation efforts in the country.

Minister Kasukuwere instructed the Environmental Management Agency (EMA) and other relevant Authorities to quickly rehabilitate the poisoned sites.

Minister Kasukuwere stressed that government will not tolerate the continued decimation of the country’s wildlife by poachers using chemicals. He added that all effort will be directed at ensuring that the culprits are apprehended.
