An employee with Somabula Safaris was attacked and killed by three lions on Friday while docking the company house boat in Matusadonha.

In a statement, Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority board chairman Alvin Ncube said soon after the incident, the Matusadonha field station deployed some rangers who killed two of the lions while the third one is currently being tracked down.

Five people have been killed while 12 others have been injured by lions country wide this year alone.

In March last year, Kariba grabbed international headlines after My Zimbabwe News published an article of a couple that was attacked by a seemingly jealous lion while having sex in a bush.

According to sources who spoke to My Zimbabwe News, the man and his alleged girlfriend, who was identified as Sharai Mawera, were reportedly having sex in a bushy area situated in Mahombekombe suburb when a lion pounced on them.

"Unfortunately the woman, who was also known as Mai Desire, was mauled to death by the lion but her boyfriend managed to escape naked and he was only wearing a condom. The two were having their quality time near Mahombekombe Primary School," said a reliable source.

After realising the presence of the deadly wild animal in the midst of their alleged love nest, the survivor who was nude is said to have escaped for dear life and left his female counterpart behind to fake the music alone.
