ZNA member attacked and killed by hippo while on patrol in Beitbridge

A Zimbabwe National Army serviceman on patrol at Beitbridge has died after a Hippo attack.

The serviceman who suffered chest and leg injuries was pronounced dead on arrival at the Beitbridge District Hospital.

In October 2017, an unidentified border jumper died when he was attacked by a hippo on a footpath leading to the Limpopo River.

The incident occurred some 500m on the eastern side of the border post on Tuesday.

It was reported that the man believed to be between 30 and 40 years met his fate near the Beitbridge town council sewer ponds. His body was discovered by a council worker suspended from the sewer ponds’ fence.
