Kenya intensifies crackdown on illegal ivory

Kenya’s Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI) Ndegwa Muhoro has said the country will intensify its crackdown on illegal ivory in a bid to save its dwindling elephant stocks.

This is after a man linked to 40 pieces of ivory that were recovered in Nairobi was been arrested.

Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta will lead global actors in torching 120 tonnes of ivory during the the Giants Club Summit, a wildlife protection initiative scheduled to take place Kenya from April 29-30.

Kenya is among 25 African countries to have adopted a declaration demanding a total ban on ivory trade worldwide.
