The Zambian delegation led by President Edgar Lungu has successfully arrived at the City of Kasane, Botswana, to participate in the Kasane Elephant Summit — a big politic and economic discussion event aimed to address issues related to the famous animals.
The Southern Africa region is home for the largest population of the African Elephants with the species mainly concentrated within the Kavango Zambezi Trans frontier conservation Area (KAZA). The situation also unintentionally triggers a serious conflict between the peaceful giants and humans.
The elephants are dispersed throughout much of Northern Botswana, South-Western Zambia, and North-Western Zimbabwe. In this regard, the three countries conducted a big forum to review the current status of the animal, manage priorities in their work to resolve the matter and establish sustainable financing mechanisms.
According to the reports, President Lungu will soon attend a meeting together with his Botswanan and Zimbabwean counterparts. Besides him, the Zambian delegation also includes political advisor Kaizer Zulu and Special Assistant to the President for Press and Public Relations Amos Chanda.
