A 41-year-old man is in the cooler in Mzimba for being found in possession with ivory.

Senge Shonga after he was found with two pieces of raw ivory

Police say they have arrested Senge Shonga after he was found with two pieces of raw ivory at Madede in Mzimba.

Mzimba Police Deputy Publicist John Nyirongo  says police in conjunction with National Parks and Wildlife officials tracked and arrested the  suspect following a tip from the public.

The Ivory weigh 7.1 kgs and is valued at K5,857, 500.00.

Reports are indicating that the suspect smuggled the ivory from Zambian forest reserve that borders Malawi.

Shonga will answer illegal possession of specimen of endangered species charges, which is contrary to section 110(b) of National Parks and Wildlife Act.

The suspect hails from Elia Shaba village Traditional Authority Chindi,  Mzimba district.

Meanwhile, investigations are under way to arrest other two suspects who are also linked to the illegal trade  of elephant ivory in the district.

Stop giving people ideas on how much the ivory costs otherwise all our elephants will be hunted to extinction.

Sell the ivory at that price and use the money on public services. That way at least our elephant would have benefited the nation. But if you burn the ivory then the elephant would have died in vain.
