Two men have been arrested with an elephant tusk weighing 14 kilograms
worth Sh1.4 million in Matuu, Machakos.
The two were nabbed by Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) officials from Mwingi
in coordination with their counterparts in Lang'ata, Nairobi and police
officers from Yatta.
Yatta police boss Mary Njoki said the suspects were arrested at the Matuu
bus stage heading to Nairobi where they were found carrying the elephant
tusk stuffed in a sack.
Njoki pointed out that they were traced from Mwingi before the arrest and
are now being held at the Matuu police station awaiting arraignment.
