Nairobi - A policeman has been charged with aiding and abating the selling of a piece of ivory valued at KES 1.2 million in Nairobi.
The policeman, Henry Mukua Onsongo was charged together with two others for being in possession of the piece of ivory on 9 March 2015 in Nairobi's South B area.
The two others caught in the act were named Eliud Wanyonyi Wafubwa and Richard Ngeleka Kalatanda.
They were presented before the chief magistrate at the Kibera Law Courts and charged.
Onsongo was also charged for resisting arrest by coking a pistol he was in posession of during the incident just outside the Bounty Hotel Parking lot.
The matter will be heard in court on Thursday.
Last year, a report by the UN stated that law enforcement agencies played a big role in helping poaching reach the destructive levels it is in at the moment.
