Siavonga District Commissioner Lovemore Kanyama has reiterated his call on the Zambian and Zimbabwean governments to find a solution to the misunderstandings regarding the water boundaries on Lake Kariba and the Zambezi River that the two countries share.
Mr. Kanyama says the water boundaries on the two water bodies are not clear a situation that has led to the arrest and subsequent prosecution of the Zambian Fishermen allegedly accused of crossing to the Zimbabwean side.
The district commissioner has also appealed to the Zimbabwean authorities to transfer Zambian fishermen that have been jailed in that country to the Zambian Correctional facilities.
About 8 Zambian fishermen have been appearing in the Zimbabwean courts after they were arrested for fishing on the Zimbabwean side on Lake Kariba.
Two have since been sentenced to 8 months imprisonment.
Meanwhile, Mr Kanyama says the lion that has been terrorizing residents in some parts of Siavonga is still on the loose.
The wild beast is reported to have so far killed about 17 cows in the past 3 months.
Mr Kanyama said efforts to hunt down the lion have proved futile and that his office intends to engage the Zambia Air force on the possibility of using a chopper to help track the lion.
