The stranded villagers of Kanyemba are now being housed at a nearby school.
“More than 50 families have been displaced since last week,” said a National Parks officer, who refused to be identified. “ They are now staying at Kapota School.”
He said the villagers were being guarded by armed National Parks officers.
