Elephants roaming around the Sorris Sorris conservancy have allegedly destroyed gardens and potable water pipes at the Anigab settlement and surrounding farms. On Monday, the chairperson of the Sorris Sorris Conservancy, Gerson //Aiseb said to the Namibia Press Agency that it has been a routine for the past eight years that elephants would come around the farms in the conservancy areas and Anigab and destroy gardens and pull out potable water pipes. Chief Public Relations Officer at the Ministry of Environment, Forestry and Tourism, Romeo Muyunda said the elephants cannot be minimised or relocated. Muyunda is quoted as saying that “the government’s communal conservancy program has sought to reduce human-wildlife conflict by empowering communities to manage the wildlife and generate income and benefits for conservancy members.”
