Poachers netted with ivory worth KES300 000

12 April 2013, 19:17 James Kabotia

Police in Nanyuki town have arrested two suspected poachers and recovered a rhino horn worth KES 300 000 in black market.

Laikipia East police commander Joshua Lutukai told the media that the two men were arrested at Dol Dol matatu terminus possessing the horn weighing 250grammes.

“We arrested the two suspected poachers as they were looking for a market for the horn,” Lutukai said.

The police boss added that one of the suspects operates a kiosk at the terminus while the other one is said to be a broker.

Lutukai said the two men are being held at Nanyuki police station as they wait to be arraigned in court, adding that they are searching for one more suspect who is at large.

This comes barely two weeks after Kenya wildlife service (KWS) rangers in collaboration with police officers gunned down a suspected poacher in Likii village on the outskirts of Nanyuki town and recovered three AK 47 rifles loaded with 117 rounds of ammunition.

An axe, binoculars and other assorted items were also found in the room that he was living.

The middle aged man engaged police officers in a shootout when he was ordered to surrender, where he was overpowered and killed.
