KWS officers impound ivory, arrest six in Nairobi

17 April 2014, 16:50 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Six people have been arrested with a truck filled with pieces of ivory by Kenya Wildlife Service officials in Nairobi.

The six were arrested after KWS officials raided the truck at a petrol station close to the Wilson Airport along Langata Road.

On assessment, KWS officers found close to 130 pieces of ivory, estimated to be worth hundreds of millions of shillings.

KWS communications officer Paul Mbugua who was at the scene, said that the six would be charged and arraigned in court for possession of ivory which is illegal in Kenya.

" The six were arrested after a tip off and they will be charged and arraigned in court as soon as possible, Mbugua said.

The discovery will cast doubts on continued efforts to stem poaching and curb the ivory trade which has caused the killing of an increased number of wild animals in the country, with estimates putting the number of animals killed for their tusks to have increased by upto 40%.

The government has already put in place mechanisms to curb the trend but with the latest discovery, it will be a wake-up call to authorities over the trade.
