Zambezi residents are still engulfed by fear of visiting the Chobe River as there is no guarantee that they will make it back alive due to the presence of the Botswana Defence Force, the region’s governor, Lawrence Sampofu has said. He added that there is a feeling of helplessness as there is nothing he can do on the regional level as his office and traditional leaders in the region await updates from the Ministry of International Relations and Cooperation on the way forward. The Namibia press agency reports that Sampofu is also not the only one who has expressed concern with the security situation in that region.
