Animal rights groups calls on the minister of Water and Environmental Affairs to resign

Outraged South African Citizens Against Poaching has called on the Minister of Water and Environmental Affairs, Edna Molewa, to resign for failing to tackle the issue of rhino poaching.

The organisation’s director, Allison Thomson, says that animal activists feel Molewa should resign because rhino poaching had increased.

Thomson, who calls for an independent inquiry into the department, is of the view that poaching is rampant not because there are no funds to curb it, but because of corruption within the system.
