Nakuru - Two Chinese nationals were Tuesday night arrested inside the Lake Nakuru national park with night vision gadgets and two homemade guns suspected to be used in poaching.

Speaking to the press Wednesday morning, Lake Nakuru national park senior warden, Maureen Musembi said that the two were in company of a Kenyan citizen and had entered the park illegally using a "panya route".

Musembi said that the Chinese are suspected to have been targeting rhinos and elephants at the Park.

"Last night, our officers who were on patrol spotted suspicious elements at the Park and trailed them. They arrested two Chinese   and one Kenyan who was guiding them," said Musembi.

The three were taken to the central police station and will be presented in court Wednesday afternoon.
