07 June 2013, 16:07
Nairobi - Poaching offenders will now have to part away with KES 1 million fine as President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Cabinet takes a firm hand to curb the menace.
According to The Standard, the move came during their first sitting on Thursday as the cabinet chaired by the President approved the Wildlife and the Wildlife Conservation and Management Bill and Policy.
The Bill proposes that Kenya Wildlife Service ( KWS) Officials found conniving with poachers be sacked, and any property acquired through poaching activities confiscated.
