Mozambicans living in South Africa are taking a stand against rhino poaching in the country.
A campaign to curb the slaying of rhinos has been launched in Mhinga village outside Malamulele in the north-eastern side of the Kruger National Park in Limpopo.
The campaign is being led by the Mozambican non-profit organisation - "Mvumbanu" - a Xitsonga/Shangaan word meaning togetherness.
Mvumbanu chairperson Admiro Maluleke says in many cases, rifles from the Mozambican civil war are used for poaching.
“When we discovered that people are killing these poor defenceless animals within our communities, this worried us a great deal. We thought it was a good for idea for us to educate our communities on preserving our wildlife not destroying it. We are going to be working with communities living on the border of South Africa and Mozambique and hopefully put a stop to the killing of rhinos.”
