CS gives three weeks ultimatum to surrender wildlife trophies

31 March 2016, 09:50 Arap Yego

Nairobi - Members of the public who illegally possess Ivory and other wildlife trophies have three weeks to surrender them to authorities or face prosecution.

Environment Cabinet Secretary Prof Judy Wakhungu issued the ultimatum Wednesday and warned that all those who will not have surrendered the trophies by 21 days will face the full force of the law.

“We are asking all those with the wildlife trophies to surrender them before the end of the grace period. We shall mercilessly deal with those who would not have done so by the end of three weeks,” she warned.

“The items should be taken to the various Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) stations across the country.They can also be brought to the KWS Headquarters in Nairobi,” directed Prof Wakhungu.

The CS made the remarks at the KWS headquarters where she inspected 120 tonnes of ivory that was seized by KWS from poachers. The ivory will be torched by President Uhuru Kenyatta in April as a step  to up the fight against poaching.

The CS noted that the recent human-animal conflict pitting lions is as a result of infrastructure development in and around the park but assured the situation shall be put to rest.
