A notorious poacher in the Maasai Mara Game Reserve was arrested by Kenya Wildlife Service warderns and elephant tusks worth Sh2 million recovered on Christmas Day.
Trans Mara KWS warden William Kiptoo said his officers were carrying out an operation when they encountered three armed poachers at Kawai. William Kinyamar was arrested with 10kgs of elephant tusks while his two accomplices escaped.
"The arrest of the suspect is an achievement to us since he belongs to a dangerous cartel that is involved in poaching of wildlife in the Maasai Mara and we have launched a manhunt for his two accomplices," said Kiptoo.
