THE CROCODILE OF THE LUBILINGA RIVER
A few days back, a story circulated about a kid who had been attacked by a crocodile in a nearby village. These big reptiles are not notorious for killing humans in the region, because people know where they hunt, usually in larger and deeper rivers where the current is slower. It seems, however, that one ferocious individual had been creating trouble for a while in the Lubilinga River, a water curse streaming along the border of Maiko National Park. Sadly enough, it culminated in the death of a teenager going by the nickname “Showman”.
