Environment, Water and Climate minister Oppah Muchinguri-Kashiri confirmed to The Herald that Government has launched an investigation into a suspected poisoning of hippos in Binga close to the Zambezi river. There are also indications that villagers were eating the poisoned hippos exposing themselves to danger.
Now we need to evaluate which type of chemicals they are. EMA is seized with the matter and once we establish the type of chemicals being used we can map the way forward.
She also said that there are banned toxic chemicals that are still finding their way into the country.
