Angola is not going back on its decision to ban the hunting of wildlife despite resistance from hunters and bushmeat sellers.
Bushmeat locally known as “Carne de zaza” in Portuguese, is popular in Angola and easily accessible.
As the government intensifies the clampdown on wildlife trade, customers find it a bitter pill to swallow as they may have to go without the loved delicacy.
Some hunters and bushmeat sellers have vowed to continue with the business despite government’s efforts to curb the illegal trade.
Angola is home to Africa’s largest bushmeat and ivory market.
The southern African country is now a transit point for illegal ivory.
