Two Botswana men caught with elephant tasks

A Namibian Police chief inspector Kauna Shikwambi has said two men from Botswana were arrested at Sila village in the Zambezi region where they were trying to sell five elephant tusks on Friday afternoon. The men, Shikwambi said, are aged 36 and 50. “It is alleged that the tusks were brought into Namibia from Botswana after the suspects crossed the river by canoe,” she said, adding that the value of the tusks is yet to be determined. The men are expected to appear in the Katima Mulilo Magistrate's Court, Shikwambi said. This arrest comes a week after three others were arrested at Tjova village in Kavango East while in possession of 13 elephant tusks. [The Namibian]
