By Yamikani Harji, MACHINGA

An unidentified woman, 35; and two children aged between 5 and 10 are admitted to Machinga District Hospital after being bitten by a suspected African Wild Dog along Zomba Road in the district.

Hospital spokesperson Ongani Nyirenda says the 10-year-old child has sustained a serious injury on the nose while the mother and the other kid have minor injuries.

“Indeed, we have the three in our wards. The mother and the kids are the residents of community residential area and during the night of Tuesday that’s when they met their fate,” says Nyirenda.

He adds they have already injected the three with anti-rabies vaccine.

But Liwonde Police publicist Ngwashape Msume says they have not yet received the report.

Meanwhile, Liwonde National Park Manager Davie Robertson says the park is no longer having wild dogs.

But he discloses as management, they have contacted the district’s council authorities to investigate; fearing there might be rabies around the animal.

“We are responsible for animals within our park but with the development, we have contacted the council’s authorities to help us in the investigations around the township so that we treat the animal as well as interviewing some domestic people within on the same,” says Robertson.

It is further reported that wild dogs population in the park was completely wiped out with poisoning by poachers in the district.
