Three people have been killed by a crocodile across Chambeshi River in Chandamukulu’s area in Kasama in the last one month.
Kasama District Commissioner Kalanga Bwalya confirmed the development to ZANIS in Kasama today.
Mr. Bwalya said the first incident happened last month when the crocodile attacked and killed a 19-year- man as he tried to cross the river.
He added that the second and third deaths were recorded early this month when an old man and a nine year old boy were attacked in separate incidents.
Mr. Bwalya has appealed to the Zambia Wildlife Authority (ZAWA) to urgently send officers to crop the reptiles to avoid further loss of life.
