Two more arrested for elephant tusk

The Namibian Police’s unit for protective resources continues to deal ivory smugglers a devastating blow. Two more men (pictured above) were arrested on Friday in Walvis Bay after they tried to sell an elephant tusk and a pangolin skin to undercover police officers. The duo, Tgingeje Muhuka and Mbinao Kenahama, made a first appearance before a magistrate in Walvis Bay yesterday (pictured above).

It brings the number to five, people arrested the past few days in Walvis Bay for the illegal possession of elephant tusks and in the latest case of a pangolin skin.
During the course of last weekend, Walvis Bay residents Mike Lusse (60), Dirk Vermeulen (51) and Edgar Clark (41) were arrested after the trio attempted to sell two elephant tusks to an undercover police officer at a house in Walvis Bay’s Fairways Estate.
The last two arrests were carried out on Friday night during an undercover police operation. The two were arrested near the Yianni Savva building.
