MET drills boreholes to save hippos stranded along the Chobe River

The Namibian Government has drilled a borehole to pump underground water into parts of the Chobe River between Namibia and Botswana.
The hole is meant to save hippos stranded there, as the Chobe River continues to dry up due to the current drought.
About 60 hippos have been stranded in a stream of the Chobe River which divides Namibia and neighbouring Botswana.
