Kenya: KWS Rangers Confiscate More Ivory

Elephant tusks worth more than four million shillings have been impounded by KWS wardens in West Pokot. Two poachers who had the tusks however managed to escape.

Area KWS assistant director Daniel Onsembe says they are yet to establish the origin of the tusks. This comes a week after Mombasa police seized 2 tons of ivory valued at 100 million shillings.
