Julian Rademeyer, the author of Killing for Profit: Exposing the Illegal Rhino Horn Trade, spoke to Jenny Crwys-Williams on Talk Radio 702 for World Rhino Day.
Nathi Mncube, the National Prosecuting Authority spokesman, spoke about the recent arrests and bail hearings of ten members of a poaching syndicate. Some of the people arrested are powerful and well-connected individuals. Rademeyer spoke about Hugo Ras, the syndicate’s ring-leader, and his previous trysts with the law.
Rademeyer says that the arrests are an encouraging sign, but that rhino poaching is still a system problem. Audiofile.
