National Intelligence Service to aid in curbing poaching

14 April 2014, 10:17

Nairobi - The National Intelligence Service NIS will aid in curbing poaching, the government has said.

Poaching has been on a steep rise in the country in the last 12 months and with the Kenya Wildlife Service KWS seemingly unable to stem the tide, the government has been forced to step in.

According to Environment Principal Secretary Richard Lesiyampe, the NIS will provide ways on how to deal with the matter.

" The NIS will provide guidance and possible solutions to the problem, he said.

He further added that there would be steps taken on wildlife management as whole in the country as a way of dealing with the rising incidences of poaching.

" We are looking further than intelligence. We are also looking at the larger management set-up in the country, he added.

The government insists that with the added recruitment of rangers as well as increased awareness on poaching, the vice will stop.

Added to the current probe on the KWS which has seen six senior officials sent home, the government feels that it is on the right track in dealing with the menace.
