OPUWO: The Opuwo Town Council on Monday started removing livestock from the town’s boundaries.
Officials of the town council told Nampa on enquiry yesterday that they are not impounding the animals as of yet, but are only chasing them out of town and recording their numbers.
Josef Hilelwa, one of the impounding officials, said they could not impound the livestock now due to a lack of facilities at the impounding kraals, such as drinking facilities and feed or grass for the animals.
From Monday to Thursday, 15 cows were chased from the town, as well as 37 goats and eight donkeys.
The Opuwo Town Council Chief Executive Officer Alphons Tjitombo told Nampa in an earlier interview that only unattended animals will be impounded, saying those that for instance are used to draw donkey carts will be spared as they do not roam around the streets unattended.
