In a meeting with local leaders in sectors neighbouring the Akagera National Park, Francois Kanimba, Trade and Industry Minister said the government has adopted a policy that is going to put an end on conflicts between the Park and people whose crops were destroyed by wild animals.

During the discussions, Minister Kanimba said that the compensation policy has already been enacted and will be implemented very soon to compensate those who lost their properties.

An electric wall between the park and residential areas is currently under construction to prevent wild animals from crossing over and destroy people’s crops and sometimes taking lives of unfortunate ones.

The sectors bordering with the Akagera National Park are Nasho, Mpanga, Nyamugari and Mahama.
