A primary school teacher has been arrested by detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) and Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) in possession of two elephant tusks.
The teacher was arrested alongside four other suspects while looking for a potential customer to buy the tusks over the weekend.
Director of Criminal Investigations George Kinoti said they arrested five suspects in the operation.
The arrest came barely a month after KWS reported that an elephant had been killed by suspected poachers around Emotoroki area in the county.
“Five suspects found in possession of two Jumbo Tusks weighing 18Kg in Kajiado were yesterday arrested by a joint team of KWS and DCI.” The DCI statement stated.
