Man arrested with 20 KG ivory

18 August 2014, 11:40 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - Police in Kieni west sub-County have arrested a 22-year-old man in possession of 20.2 kilograms of elephant tusks.

Police, who said they were acting on intelligence reports from Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) rangers and local residents, arrested the man at his home near Kiandongoro forest.

They found the blood-stained tusks in his house, after trailing him from Ndaragwa area, near Nyandarua County.

While confirming the incident, Kieni west police boss Kipruto Kemboi said residents told police that there were some people trading in ivory near the Nyeri-Nyandarua border.

One ivory was weighing 10.1 kilos while the other was 9.1 kilos, Kemboi said, adding that the elephant was suspected to have been between eight and ten-years-old.

He further suspected that the elephant had been killed in Aberdare National Park.

A series of poaching incidents mostly targeting elephants and rhinos have increased in the recent past in Isiolo, Nyeri, Laikipia and Nyandarua counties, with Kemboi assuring increased efforts in dealing with poaching cartels in the area.
