Wild animals are believed to be terrorizing villagers in Chieftainess Waitwika‘s chiefdom in Nakonde district as 13 domestic animals have been killed.
Both Nakonde District Commissioner James Singoyi and Chieftainess Waitwika confirmed the development to ZANIS in separate interviews today.
Mr Singoyi said a team of officers from the Zambia Wildlife Authority (ZAWA) is expected to commence the search for the wild animals suspected to be lions.
The DC expressed happiness that ZAWA is already in the district to hunt down the wild animals.
And Chieftainess Waitwika told ZANIS that her people are living in fear of the lions.
The traditional leader has since expressed worry over the safety of her people who could easily become targets of the wild beasts.
