Tourism and Arts Minister Ronald Chitotela has warned poachers and encroachers that Government will not allow illicit activities in the Kafue National Park.

And Mr. Chitotela has called on African Parks to help in bringing poaching and encroachment in national parks to a stop.

He says for Government to effectively manage such a vast land there is need to engage the private sector and communities near the park on the dangers that these acts have on natural resources.

Mr. Chitotela was speaking when African Parks handover two aircrafts, vehicles and equipment to the Ministry of Tourism and Arts under the Kafue National Park Priority Support Plan (PSP).

The PSP is a collaboration between the Department of National Parks and Wildlife and African Parks and is aimed at increasing technical and financial support to Kafue National Park.

And African Parks Chief Executive Officer Peter Fearnhead said the Kafue National Park and other parks in the country have the potential to grow thus the network is committed to supporting Government.
