16 April 2015, 07:38 Jackson Okata

Nakuru - A Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) officer at the Lake Nakuru national park was arrested Wednesday carrying 20 kilograms of ivory inside his bag.

Lake Nakuru national park senior warden, Maureen Musembi said that the officer whose name has not been revealed, is suspected to have been working with poachers to kill elephants and rhinos at the park.

Speaking Wednesday at the park, Musembi said that the officer who was on night duty had asked for an off day to attend to personal matters.

"The officer had requested to be given an off day saying that he had an urgent family issue to settle but it seems he had planned to travel to Nairobi where he was to sell the ivory," said Musembi.

Musembi added that the officer will assist them in  tracing a notorious ring of poachers that has been targeting elephants and rhinos at the park.

"He will be of great help especially at this time when we are trying to pin down a ring that has been killig elephants and rhinos at the park," she said.
