Three arrested ferrying ivory in Nairobi

31 December 2014, 20:22 Nechesa Chemoi

Nairobi - Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) Wednesday said its officers nabbed three people ferrying four pieces of ivory weighing fourteen kilogrammes in Nairobi.

A statement from KWS said the three, John Waweru, John Waigwa, and Roseline Kimani were arrested on Tuesday at Kayole junction along Nairobi’s kangundo road ferrying the contraband ivory on a motorbike.

“The suspects were remanded at the Langata police station awaiting appearance in court to answer to charges of illegal possession and trafficking of wildlife trophy,” the statement read in part.

KWS also announced the arrest of 18 herdsmen for illegal livestock grazing in Tsavo West National Park.

“The herdsmen have been remanded at the Taita Taveta police station and are due to be aligned in court for illegal grazing in a protected area,” KWS said.

According to KWS, livestock incursion in national parks and reserves is one of the major threats to wildlife conservation. 

“The livestock deplete food and water resources for wildlife and poachers take advantage of these incursions by posing as herdsmen. Besides, livestock intruding the protected areas pose the danger of spreading diseases,” KWS said.
