Residents urged to be wary of crocodiles


Residents of Leeuwfontein, RDP section are having sleepless nights. They fear for their lives after they spotted a crocodile inside a pond in the area. The reptile was seen by one of the houses’ owner. According to residents, it has already eaten ducks and chickens belonging to locals.

The area does not have electricity, making it almost impossible to spot the deadly reptiles at night.
The pond covers five yards of the section, and following the recent rains, some of the yards are still flooded.

Sekhukhune District Municipality (SDM) ’s spokesperson Moloko Moloto said, “Residents are being cautioned that a crocodile has been spotted inside a pond, (a small body of water) inside a yard in the residential area.

“Officials from the Community Services Departments of both SDM and Ephraim Mogale Local Municipality, along with officials from the World Life Trade & Regulation from the Limpopo Department of Environment and Tourism are working on capturing the crocodile.”

He added, “Residents are urged to be on high alert, especially at night, until the reptile is captured. Parents and guardians must safeguard children”

The municipality also encouraged traditional leaders to first get in touch with ward councillors and the district municipality before they could give out stands for human settlement.

“This will assist in avoiding to settle people on wetlands and uninhabitable areas.”
