De Beers Executive Attacked by Lion in Botswana
Neo Daniel Moroka, Managing Director of De Beers Botswana, was attacked by a lion on Tuesday. He is in stable condition, according to De Beers. Moroka was attacked on his farm during a search after lost live stock.
Moroka was with a group of trackers on his farm in Tsabong, west of Gaborone, Botswana, when the lion attacked them from behind. Moroka was scratched by the lion before one of the trackers shot and killed the lion.
“We were shocked by the news and are all wishing him a quick recovery,” De Beers' spokeswoman Lynette Gould told IDEX Online.
