A man charged with possession of wildlife trophies has told a Mombasa court he mistook them for carved stones.
The court was told Peter Kamau was found with 2kg of elephant ivory without a license from the Kenya Wildlife Services on Friday.
Kamau was arrested by officers from Mbaraki KWS officers.
He was also found with 68 pieces of chopsticks, 14 pieces of necklaces, nine rings and five pieces of carvings all made of ivory.
He denied the charges and was released on a Sh 1 million bond with a surety in similar amount.
The case will be heard on October 8.
