Tourism and Arts Minister Ronald Chitotela has warned poachers of stern action following the restocking of National Parks in Kawambwa District.

Mr. Chitotela says officers at the Department of National Parks and Wildlife will not be lenient in dealing with lawbreakers.

The Minister said this during a stakeholders meeting with sub-chief Kabanda and the area headmen during his ongoing tour of Kawambwa.

Mr. Chitotela said the aim of the exercise is to revive tourism in the Northern Circuit.

The Minister also urged people to change their mind set and look at world life as a source of revenue and employment for the country.

Mr. Chitotela further urged the department of national parks and wildlife to start conducting clean up exercises for illegal firearms among villagers.

  1. That’s all these thieves know the language of issuing threats ….meanwhile he is the biggest poacher in the country selling wildlife to the highest bidder. He can not talk about sustainable tourism to combat poaching by locals.

  2. Just shoot and arrest them. Anyone who shoots a living creature also deserves similar treatment. Poachers are scum of earth

  3. Just shoot and arrest them. Anyone who shoots a living creature also deserves similar treatment. Poachers are scum of earth . The ministry has just restocked the parks, meanwhile tarino has read the opposite that the minister is poaching. I don’t know if reading is a problem for upnd diasporans or if they choose to act ignorantly when it suits them. How can such dogs win an election?

  4. I bet you of the number of wildlife he has restocked three quarters of the have been sold off to SA private ranchers …you can not have this corrupt thief overseeing national parks. Why doesnt he give the numbers of wildlife restocked?

  5. Restocking eh! – It seems that the animals have been wiped out! I hope they are not being restocked only to be trophy hunted.

    If people on the ground – villagers etc., were stake holders in conserving wildlife, there would be no poaching. I think poaching stems from a feeling of being denied hunting rights in your own back yard, yet a foreign lodge owner can fence off tracts of forest & hunt at will.

    Regulate hunting – so that it is seasonal, & only certain types of animals – dependant on numbers, might be hunted for personal consumption – not sale. Make the process
    of acquiring hunting licences accessible and easy for villagers to manage.

    Criminalising is draconian, and not a long term solution.

  6. Since when has there been any game park in Kawambwa?. This other Luapula thief after selling wild animals from Zambia National parks transfers some to his village. Grow coffee and tea, cattle ranching and commercial farming does not do well culturally in Luapula.

  7. This is the same guy that has been poaching black Lechwe and other exotic animals we have in zed.

    It is ok for them to poach and sell mukula though.

    These thieves have zero credibility.

  8. Who even told him to restock wildlife in Kawambwa ….he is simply duping the masses and what animals has he restocked it with….this is a case of the monkey overseeing the maizefield. Next year he will say look I restocked animals vote for me after he has sold more than half to foreign bidders.

  9. I am looking for the sangoma who told upnd and their diasporan supporters that criticizing and wishing bad things on a country wins elections. Some one give me his contact number
