Prosecutors and magistrates improve skills to combat wildlife crime in Namibia

Namibia’s population of free-roaming black rhino is the world’s largest, but there are no rhinos in the north-east Zambezi Region. The last were killed for their horns in the late 1980s. A Namibian public prosecutor from Zambezi’s regional capital, Katima Mulilo, says she once asked a poacher if her had ever seen a Northern White Rhino. "No," he replied. "Well you never will," Prosecutor Khama said. "The last one just died. It is extinct. And it is your fault: the poachers."
