Botswana to join Kenya in the fight against poaching

21 March 2014, 14:19 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - The government of Botswana will help Kenya in its efforts to fight poaching, Botswana High Commissioner to Kenya, John Moreti said Friday.

Moreti said the two countries share a common interest of wildlife heritage and should jointly fight the menace that is slowly endangering the wild animals.

Speaking in Nyeri town during a courtesy call to the area Deputy Governor Samuel Wamathai, Moreti expressed his concerns over the increased poaching activities in Kenya.

“We should jointly fight poaching because it is cruel to destroy nature’s gifts,” stated Moreti.

He noted that his government is committed in tackling the menace before the wildlife becomes extinct.

He regretted that although both Kenya and Botswana host a high number of wildlife, elephants and rhinos are under threat of extinction given the continued illicit ivory trade.

“We have to ask ourselves whether we want our children to read about elephants in books like we do of dinosaurs,” said the High Commissioner.

Nyeri and neighboring counties of Laikipia, Meru and Isiolo host several animal conservancies and expansive forests, but have been hit by poaching activities in the recent past.

The two leaders also discussed agriculture, with the High Commissioner noting that Kenyan coffee does not enter his country and the two countries will soon establish bilateral trade in coffee and tea.

They expressed interests of having a capacity exchange forum regarding agriculture adding that there are possibilities of exporting processed coffee from Nyeri to Botswana, where there are many Kenyans living.
