Two years after pledging 500 elephants to Mozambique as a gift, Botswana says the animals are set to be translocated in the near future.
This was revealed by President Mokgweetsi Masisi during a three-day state visit by Mozambique’s President Filipe Nyusi that ends on Good Friday.
“I wish to reiterate Botswana’s donation of 500 elephants to Mozambique. We look forward to their subsequent translocation to Mozambique in the near future and are very keen to see them finally roaming their new habitat,” Masisi told journalists during Nyusi’s visit.
Masisi first made the offer in 2018.
