Two female juveniles aged two have died after they were caught up in a bush fire in Kasempa district of North Western Province.

The incident happened when the two, while in the company of their elderly friends, went hunting rats but were caught up in a bush fire just near their village.

    There’s no one on earth who is aged 2. People are aged 2 years or 2 months. Which age is that? maybe I have missed it. Anyway, too bad. And, don’t say life can be hard at times, hunting roddents is not due to poverty. Roddents are good for food, they are animals.
