Elephant kills L/stone man

 AN elephant has trampled to death a 38-year-old Livingstone hotel worker.

Southern region senior wildlife warden Lewis Daka confirmed the incident but referred all queries to the Musi-oa-Tunya National Park area warden Bovax Kachali, who said the deceased was killed at around 06:00 hours yesterday as he cycled to work.

“I received a call from our wildlife officer from our office near Chrismar Hotel entrance who informed me that a person has been trampled upon by an elephant. I called the police and also rushed to the scene. On arrival at the scene, which is in the Musi-oa-Tunya National Park, we found that indeed a man had been trampled upon,” said Kachali. “The deceased has been identified as Mutema Muzya of Linda residential area aged 38 and worked for a lodge in the kitchen. And his remains have been deposited in the Livingstone Central Hospital mortuary.”
