Through the help of intelligence reports, the police officers were able to capture the four male suspects who were in the process of selling the game trophies in Simba Cement area, Kajiado South Sub-county.

The four suspected poachers are currently in police custody while helping police with investigations pending further steps. According to National Police Service, the four will be arraigned in the court of law and preferred charges pressed against them. The elephant trophies that were recovered by the police are currently in safe custody at the station to be used as exhibits.

Members of the public have now been told that engaging in poaching activities and selling of their trophies is an illegal and a criminal offence that attracts hefty fines and possible imprisonment. Kenyans have been urged to ensure that they preserve wildlife since it is vital for the nation. Additionally, they can promote wildlife conservation and report any criminal acts to law enforcement agencies.
