Suspected ivory smugglers in custody

05 July 2012, 11:22 Robert Kibet

Two suspected ivory smugglers are being held at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport police station in Nairobi after they failed to raise a historic Sh30 million bond each.
John Mesilya Mule Mweu and Ngusu David James alias King David alias Bouncer were arraigned before Makadara Law Courts in Nairobi on Monday.
The suspects denied the charges and were to be released on a bond of Sh. 30 million each. However, they remained in police after they failed to raise.
The two suspects will appear for a mention of their case at the same court on Thursday.
The hearing is set for September 17, 2012.
They were arrested in connection with 345 pieces of ivory weighing 601 kg intercepted at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, Nairobi, by KWS Canine Unit, Police and Customs officials while being smuggled to Lagos, Nigeria.
At the same time, two more suspects were arrested on Wednesday over the same ivory and were arraigned before Makadara Law Courts in Nairobi on Wednesday.
Investigations into the contraband are continuing while the noose is tightening on two other suspected kingpins behind the illegal trade in ivory.
