Government dresses down game rangers

The Malawi Government through the Ministry of Natural Resources, Energy and Mining has blasted Malawian game rangers for demanding to be given a job for which they do not have expertise.

This follows the ministry’s decision to hire a South African firm, African Parks, to help in the relocation of elephants from Liwonde to Nkhotakota game reserve. The Johannesburg based non-profit group also manages the two wildlife reserves.

But Malawian rangers protested the move and accused the ministry of being unfair by hiring a foreign company to do the job instead of the local rangers.

However, director of parks and wildlife in the ministry Brighton Kumchedwa said they have involved the South African company because they are the ones who have expertise in the job.

“It is unfortunate that some rangers say we should have involved them in the relocation of elephants from Liwonde to Nkhotakota game reserve because this is not an easy job, it needs people who know the job well,” said Kumchedwa.

He added that if Malawi had a company which had the same skills as the South African company then it would have been hired.

Kumchedwa further said that when choosing a company to do the job, they were looking for people who have the expertise to do the work.

Up to 500 elephants are expected to be moved from Liwonde to Nkhotakota game reserve this month. So far, about 130 elephants have already been relocated.
