Land use issues in neighbouring Namibia
AllAfrica.com reports on the dispute in Namibia's west Kavango area between Oshiwambo-speaking cattle farmers and the Kwangali tribal authority in Kavango Region over cattle grazing rights. Oshiwambo-speaking farmers with reported 60,000 cattle grazing illegally in west Kavango are refusing to obey evictions orders made in late November. Further south, in the Otjozondjupa Region, four new communal area conservancies were gazetted. Meanwhile the Namibian Professional Hunting Association (NAPHA) is pressing the Namibian government to address delays in allocation of hunting concessions.
