KWS | Three suspected poachers gunned down In Tsavo as Ethiopian Immigrants seized in Amboseli.

Three suspected poachers have been gunned down and four firearms with 81 rounds of ammunition recovered in two separate incidents in the last one week.

In a third unrelated incident, a joint Kenya Wildlife Service and police team seized 95 suspected illegal male immigrants from Ethiopia last night at 2am on the Amboseli Namanga Road. Plans are underway to arraign them before the Kajiadop Court this morning.

The three unidentified suspects, who were on a poaching mission inside the expansive Tsavo East National Park, were shot dead after a shoot-out with Kenya Wildlife Service personnel, yesterday at 4.30 pm.
In this incident, three AK-47 rifles and 80 rounds of ammunition were recovered.

Also recovered were three pieces of ivory. One suspect escaped from the shoot-out with serious injuries. Police from Voi have visited the scene of crime and are continuing with further investigations into the incident.  A follow-up operation is underway.

In another wildlife crime related incident at Ndonyo Wasin in Samburu County, KWS personnel recovered a G3 rifle and one round of ammunition. This was recovered following interrogation of two suspected poachers, including a woman, in police custody.
KWS has strengthened its law enforcement capacity and enhanced collaboration with other security agencies to address poaching. Much of the success attained in apprehending criminals and recovering illegal trophies and firearms is attributed to information provided by the public.
We appreciate this public support and remain committed to relentlessly fighting wildlife crime in all its forms.
