Woman killed by Crocodile in Lusaka Province, Zambia.

A 57-year-old woman has been killed while on a fishing trip on the Zambezi River in Lusaka Province, Zambia. Sophia Njovu of the village of Muchingamire was dragged into the river by the animal on Saturday 23 September 2017, near Chiawa in Kafue District. This was the fifth Crocodile-related death in the country in the last two years. In a separate incident, a man was injured by another Crocodile while swimming in the Zambezi near Kanyachi in Chavuma District of Northwestern Province. Boyd Funga, 33, was attacked on Friday 22 September, and is being treated in the Chavuma Mission Hospital for injuries to his legs and chest.

Zambia is home to two Crocodile species, the Nile Crocodile, Crocodylus niloticus, and the Slender Snouted Crocodile, Crocodilus cataphractus, though the later is found only around Lake Bangweulu and the Luapula River, so the Zambezi River attacks were almost certainly carried out by Nile Crocodiles. Nile Crocodiles are large animals, reaching about five meters in length, and are ambush predators capable of taking large prey, including, on occasion, Humans. The animals are thought to be at their most dangerous around September on the Zambezi, when the water is lowest, and females are guarding eggs buried in nests by the river.

Nile Crocodiles are considered to be of Least Concern under the terms of the  International Union for the Conservation of Nature’s Red List of  Threatened Species, but are still protected in many countries, including Zambia, due to historic hunting which decimated populations in many areas. However, the rising number of attacks on Humans by the animals has led to calls for regulated hunting to be introduced to control the population.

      50/50 which means I can’t lose my money to any scammer
      again. I contacted the email on the testimony of Allison?
      Babara (securehackers01@gmail.com) and I was
      replied immediately. I was shocked but I didn’t lose my stand.

      scammers like others that I have met before and they sent me
      a proof. Then I requested to get my card which they sent to
      me in Germany in just 3 days. Am happy now because I have?
      recovered my cash I lost to scammers. My first withdrawal?
      was $10,000 and I couldn’t believe my eyes until I confirmed?
      their word which says that I can withdraw up $63,000 in a
      month. secureblankatmSolution? are real because I got my?
      card in just 3 days when I requested for one. Contact their

  2. THE BEST PLACE TO SOLVE YOUR FINANCIAL PROBLEMS ( upstartloan@yahoo.com )

    Hello everyone in this forum, I am Jane Robin from palm Harbor Florida 34682. USA and want to use this medium to express gratitude to UP START LOAN for fulfilling their promise by granting me a loan, i was stuck in a financial situation and needed to refinance and pay my bills as well as start up a Business. I tried seeking for loans from various loan firms both private and corporate organisations but never with success, and most banks declined my credit request. But as God would have it, i was introduced by a friend named Mary Williams to UP START LOAN whom also confirmed to me that she also obtained a loan from them. In an attempt to resolve my current situation, i got in contact with the company via email and undergone the due process of obtaining a loan from the company, to my greatest surprise within 48hrs just like my friend Mary, i was also granted a loan of $80,000.00; So my advise to everyone who or know someone who desires a loan, if you must contact any firm with reference to securing a loan online with low interest rate of 2% and better repayment plans/schedule, please contact UP START LOAN. Besides, he doesn’t know that am doing this but due to the joy in me, i'm so happy and wish to let people know more about this great company whom truly give out loans, it is my prayer that GOD should bless them more as they put smiles on peoples faces.

  8. I am very excited today and do not know where to start my testimony from. I was a poor woman with 3 kids, i found it difficult to pay my bills and feed my kids. My husband left me and the kids for another woman and ever since then we were living in pain and hunger but just few days ago i came across a testimony of a man who got a blank ATM card from Clifford Jackson so i immediately contacted them for the same type of ATM card and i am very happy to announce to the world that i am living a fulfilled life. This Blank ATM card can withdraw up to 10,000 dollars and more daily without you having any account with any Bank. I have been able to buy a house and living big with this blank ATM card. Are you poor and need help then contact Clifford Jackson via email: ( cliffordhackerspays@gmail.com )
