Mombasa - Kenya Revenue Authority officials at the Mombasa port seized yet another ivory haul on Monday — only a week after another one was impounded.
In a statement to Daily Nation, KRA's senior assistant commissioner Fatuma Yusuf said that the container carried 240 bags of groundnuts but upon scanning, ivory was discovered hidden in between the bags that had been labelled as Fresh Produce of Nairobi.
One of the elephant tusks was seven feet long, indicating that it was extracted from an old elephant, whilst the rest of the pieces were five and above feet.
