Senior KWS officers aiding poachers, says report

21 April 2015, 09:17 Jackson Okata

Nakuru - Senior Kenya wildlife service (KWS) officials at the lake Nakuru national park have been accused of aiding poachers execute their illegal activities at the park.

According to a report tabled by the Lake Nakuru national park support group, KWS officers at the park have been accused of taking bribes from influential poachers and their accomplices including even politicians.

Speaking Monday afternoon in Nakuru town during the launch of the report entitled “Lake Nakuru enemies, revealing the real ones,” patron of the support group Nelson Mwangi said that it will be hard to deal with poaching when insiders are colluding with poachers.

“The kind of activities happening behind the scenes inside the park are worrying and because the people who are supposed to be protecting our wildlife are the ones facilitating their extinction,” said Mwangi.

He added, “The officers who engage in these activities are known but are protected because the poachers and politicians have pocketed senior KWS officials.”

The report said that at least one elephant is killed by poachers inside the park and called on the government and wildlife lovers to stand against poaching and protect the few remaining elephants.
