The move follows recent reports that about one hundred hippos are trapped and stranded in a muddy pond of a channel of the Linyanti River.

Environment Minister Pohamba Shifeta on Wednesday said that through their recent assessment, they established that the two ponds still have water to sustain hippos and crocodiles.

However, he said, the situation requires the ministry to act fast in ensuring that water remains in these ponds or river channel for these animals up until the next season.

He said his ministry will maintain regular and frequent monitoring of the animals and situation of the area in collaboration with the management of the conservancy and hunting operators in the area. Enditem
