Rangers commemorate hero
A plaque, with a brief description of the incident and a few words about Wilson in English and Tsonga, was unveiled on the exact spot where the incident occurred, in the presence of members of the Ndlovu family, representatives of the local communities including their traditional leaders and local government officials.
The nearby Shirombeni ranger picket, a small building used by rangers while they conduct patrols, was also renamed the Wilson Ndlovu ranger picket. "Lance Corporal Wilson Ndlovu was a man who never tired of his task as a field ranger in our beautiful Kruger National Park. He was proud of his uniform, the ranger corps and in his own achievements.
Any brief look at him would show the observer that this was a man that knew his important role in conservation as a whole and here in the Stoltznek area in particular. He was a committed and loyal servant of that noble cause that we call conservation," said Dr Mkhize
