Man charged with illegal possession of leopard skins in Laikipia

07 May 2015, 13:27 Steven Njugunah

Nyahururu - A middle-aged man Wednesday appeared in a Nyahururu court charged with illegal possession of four leopard skins worth KES 1.2 million.

25-year-old Michael Mugambi denied the charges when he appeared before Resident magistrate Peter Muholi.

Mugambi was charged that on May 5, 2015 at Ol Moran village in Laikipia County, he was found with four leopard skins.

The court heard that Kenya Wildlife Services (KWS) rangers posing as potential buyers contacted Mugambi after receiving a tip from members of the public, and agreed to meet at Ol Moran shopping centre where he was arrested.

He was later arrested and taken to Ol Moran police station where he was charged with the offence.

The prosecution objected that the accused be granted bail since he was serving a 15 month probation sentence for handling game trophies.

The accused will be remanded at the Ol Moran police station until May 11 when the magistrate will rule on whether he can be released on bond.
