elephant_attackBUHERA CENTRAL - A local villager, Taada Njanji (81), was attacked and killed by two elephants which had strayed from Save Conservancy.

The elephants also attacked a 10-year-old pupil who was on his way from Chirozva primary school, but the boy was lucky to survive after he was rushed to Buhera hospital.

Villagers told The Zimbabwean that the jumbos charged Njanji when he was working in his field. The old man could not escape and was crushed to death.

Villagers blamed the tragedy on poachers from Mozambique who vandalised the fence at the conservancy.

Chief Nyashanu urged the National Parks and Wild Life Management to track down the elephants so that they don’t harm more villagers.
