Farmers from Lengast village, Naisinyai Ward in Simanjiro district Manyara region have complained that elephants have been invading their farms and eat crops. Speaking on Tuesday before the Simanjiro District Commissioner (DC) Zephania Chaula during his visit to the village, the villagers said elephants had become a big menace to them.
One of the elders, Kanunga Lembesei said following the menace, they were requesting the government to take actions to place at bay the beasts, as the farmers were now doing farming for no gain to themselves.
However, the Simanjiro DC Zephania Chaula called on the villagers not to approach the elephants whenever they see them, as it should not happen like what happened at Lemkuna village recently when elephants killed one person.
