The authorities in the southern Mozambican province of Maputo say crocodiles are killing people in the Incomati river, Ressano Garcia, close to the border with South Africa.
Four people have died in the past four months.
The authorities say the attacks occur when people venture into the river either to bathe or fetch fresh water.
The area is short of drinking water sources and that is why the locals try to get it from the river.
Local administration head Monica Macheque says plans are being drawn up to provide more boreholes as well as capture the crocodiles.
