Bush Fires in Namibia Destroy Grazing Areas in Omusati (News Central TV)

Wild bush fires are destroy more grazing areas in the Omusati region’s Okahao constituency. Okahao Police Station commander inspector Michael Kamati stated this when he addressed a farmers’ meeting at Ongandjera palace yesterday.

Kamati said despite grazing areas being destroyed by fires, farmers browsing with their animals in the affected and nearby areas were not helping to put out the fires.

He explained there are fires which continue to spread to other areas. At the moment, only the police and officials from the Ministry of Environment, Tourism and Forestry were extinguishing the fires.

“I am surprised that a big number of farmers have managed to show up at this meeting but they cannot go and extinguish the fire. So far only one farmer has joined us,” Kamati said.
