Rhino heroes rewarded

26 April 2018 | Environment

Last week, four farmworkers were rewarded at Namibia Breweries Limited (NBL) for their brave and courageous work which led to three suspected rhino poachers.

The suspected rhino poachers were arrested over the Easter weekend in the Omaheke Region.

Speaking at the press conference, the chairman of HoRN.nam Jaco Muller, expressed his appreciation to the four farmworkers who took a stand and stopped criminals.

“Their action represents the type of mentality we need to strive for as Namibian citizens, to do the right thing and stop any type of crime,” he said

According to NBL's marketing manager, Rene Duffy, the company's involvement in the national fight against rhino poaching is a testimony to the passion and commitment of the O&L Group with the purpose of creating and enhancing life, which includes preserving the unique landscape and wildlife of Namibia.
