Botswana kills 68 Zimbabwe cattle





Botswana police have killed 68 head of cattle worth about $35 000 through its shoot-to-kill policy.

Villagers from Bulilima and Mangwe Districts have appealed to Government to re-engage Botswana authorities to ensure the policy is reversed.

Police national anti-stock theft co-ordinator Senior Assistant Commissioner Erasmus Makodza said that the policy was not being properly implemented as most cattle that were being shot were stolen from villager's kraals.

He said 68 cattle all valued at $35 000 from Nswazi area in Bulilima District had been shot in Botswana from January to April this year. Snr Asst Comm Makodza said last year a woman from the same area lost 42 cattle that were shot in Botswana after they were stolen from her kraal.
