He shared his grief on social media.

Like Harry, William cultivates special ties with South Africa. It is therefore with great emotion that the 40-year-old prince learned of the sudden death of a local personality who was dear to him. Anton Mzimba, a famous ranger, was shot dead outside his home.

“My thoughts are with his family”

“I am deeply saddened to learn of the assassination of Anton Mzimba, whom I spoke to last November. Committed and courageous, rangers like Anton are essential to the conservation of Africa’s fantastic wildlife. Those responsible must be brought to justice quickly. My thoughts are with his family.”wrote the Duke of Cambridge on Twitter this Wednesday, July 27.

Prince William and Anton Mzimba had met in 2021 during a ranger trip to Reading. They had spoken at length about the poaching of elephants against which the South African was deploying all his energy. Other rangers have died in recent months in South Africa.
