Man dies after crocodile attack

A MAN died after he was attacked by a crocodile at Kawulu village in the Zambezi region on Saturday.


Confirming the incident to The Namibian yesterday, Zambezi regional police spokesperson Kisco Sitali said the attack happened at around 08h00 along the river.

“Community members, who were close by managed to rescue him after they heard him shouting for help. They then took him to Impaplila clinic. Unfortunately, he succumbed to the injuries he sustained in the attack,” he said.

The deceased was identified as Bainga Ebow Bainga (45) and his next of kin have been informed of his death.

In an unrelated incident, Sitali said a case of a missing person was opened last week after another man was recently attacked by a crocodile at Wooden Bridge. He was identified as Jackson Ndara Mawaya.

“It is alleged that around 20h00, Mawaya was with another adult male collecting water from the river. They wanted to fill a 25-litre plastic container, which was in the car. However, Mawaya was not so lucky when he went to fetch water from the river the second time, as a crocodile attacked him.

He started screaming, according to his friend who was at the car at the time of the attack. When he rushed back to see what was happening, he said he only saw waves in the area where they were collecting water and the tail of a crocodile going into the water. He then reported the incident to the police, the police said.

Sitali added that since receiving the report, the police have been searching for Mawaya's remains.

The police spokesperson warned the public to refrain from visiting the river for swimming, washing clothes or drawing water, as it is the second incident within the same area along the Zambezi River.

Absolutely. I shot a hippo in Zimbabwe a few yers ago and the local headman mentioned that there was a large croc around which was eating their sheep and goats as they went to water, as well as causing some sense of insecurity among the young women doing laundry and drawing water (!).

We suggested they leave some hippo entrails on the sandbar and we would return the next day. Next day, got the croc in a hail of bullets. The locals seemed far happier to have the croc gone than the meat from the hippo.

Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
