|What we want His Excellency Edgar Chagwa Lungu to say to DG of DNPW, Paul Zyambo.|
On 8 July 2016 the President of Zambia, His Excellency Edgar Chagwa Lungu was seriously questioning the Hippo *'cull' - but word is he was being resisted by The Director General of Department of National Parks and Wildlife (DNPW), Mr Paul Zyambo.
The coalition behind Hippo Whistler decided to send 700 signatures of the petition (to date 8 July) to The President. It was simultaneously delivered to both the DG of DNPW and the Minister for Tourism and copied into the President's email to assist him to make up his mind.
No response has been received to date.
