Director General Mr. Mangwanya addressing stakeholders and residence in Mashonaland West  | Biri Dam Cage Culture launch.

A command cage fisheries project has been launched at Biri Dam in Makonde, Mashonaland West Province and will benefit Zvimba, Makonde and Chinhoyi constituencies.

The project will start off with 10 000 fingerlings, which are expected to be ready for harvesting within the next 4 to 5 months, with a projected volume of 4 tonnes.

Launching the project, the Minister of Lands, Agriculture, Water, Climate and Rural Resettlement, Retired Air Chief Marshall Perrance Shiri described the initiative as tailored towards transforming the livelihoods of communities with a view of bridging the life styles gap between urban and rural populations.

“The command cage fisheries programme is within the framework of the national policy to diversify farming activities in the face of climate change. The Ministry of Environment, Tourism and Hospitality Industry must therefore create conditions which allow communities easy access to natural resources within their localities,” said Minister Shiri.

The Minister of Environment, Tourism and Hospitality Industry, Cde Prisca Mupfumira urged those implementing the cage fisheries projects to work as organised groups, and pledged to peg license fees at nominal levels for communities living within the source of wildlife resources.

According to Mashonaland West Provincial Affairs Minister, Cde Mary Mliswa, such projects are important in guaranteeing food security and nutrition.

In total, the province has received a donation of about 115 000 fingerlings.

Zimbabwean Wildlife Crime Rapid Reference Guide (RRG)

 

Space for Giants‘ work in wildlife law and justice continued this week in Zimbabwe with our Senior Criminal Justice Advisor Katto Wambua drafting the Zimbabwean Wildlife Crime Rapid Reference Guide (RRG) in collaboration with the Zimbabwe Parks Management Authority (Zimparks), Police (@Zimbabwerepublicpolice), Zimbabwe National Prosecution Authority and the locally based NGO – Speak Out For Animals at a workshop held in Hwange National Park.

The Guide, funded by the European Union will be used by key organisations that support the protection of wildlife and natural resources in the southern African country

Throughout the week, officers from the collaborating organisations had the opportunity to grasp key concepts and learn from each other as they went through the Prosecution Toolkit (RRG) that aims at increasing the success rate of prosecutions against wildlife criminals.

The RRG rollout in the African landscapes that Space for Giants’ works in has been as a result of our strong partnerships with UNODC – United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime and the local partners in which we are carrying out this work.

Zimparks guns down hippo in Nyanyadzi

August 31, 2017August 31, 2017
Inset from Zimpapers. THE Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority last week shot dead a hippopotamus that was damaging winter wheat in Nyanyadzi. The hippo, which had a calf, is believed to have escaped from Save Conservancy. ZPWMA ordered the shooting of the hippos after traditional leaders in the area reported that it was damaging crops and endangering lives. ZPWMA officer, Mr John Danfa, said they were still hunting for the calf which is believed to have found habitat along Save River. “Usually hippos move up and down rivers during the rainy season. We believe the two escaped from Save Valley Conservancy. They were both females and they do not usually click if there is no male. “They are believed to have separated. We received reports from traditional leaders in Hot Springs and Nyanyadzi that these hippos were feeding on wheat and crops in their fields.” “People’s lives were endangered so the authorities ordered its killing. The first time we attempted to kill it, it was in the company of so many cattle and could not do anything. Our officer teamed up with villagers to track it until last week when it was shot down in Nyanyadzi”. The officer is said to have fired 12 shots before the hippo died. The meat was shared by villagers. One of the villagers in Dirikwe village, Mr Tapiwa Munyati, said: “This hippo was becoming a threat to human lives in the area. It was being spotted near homes at night. “There are vegetable gardens along one of Save River’s tributaries where it was being spotted.“We were told that hippos do not like light and the danger was that lives would have been lost.” “A villager survived death by a whisker recently when the hippo strayed into his homestead.“He went out of his house to investigate when his dogs were barking. He had a torch and the hippo advanced towards him. “Fortunately he managed to escape the attack and notified other villagers and the village head. We are appealing to the responsible authorities to make sure that the remaining one is also killed,” said Mr Munyati.
