NORTHERN WHITE RHINOS - TWO left?

A BBC News report on the DR Congo elections mentions that Congolese Vice-President Azarias Ruberwa says that there are only TWO Northern White Rhino left in the country.
Michael Allison, from Preston in the UK, who asked our panel of Lubumbashi voters whether the environment had been mentioned in the election campaign, will be pleased to know that Mr Ruberwa did indeed cite the virtual extinction of the white rhino - he said there were just two left - as one of the many examples of how Congo has been misgoverned since independence.
This news comes less than a month since we reported that there were only FOUR Northern White Rhinos left.
