He however noted that there has been remarkable progress in curbing and trafficking of wildlife.
In 2014, 164 elephants were poached in the country which significantly reduced to 96 in 2015.
The same year 35 rhinos were illegally killed compared to 11 in 2015.
Omondi added that with the implementation of the wildlife conservation and management Act 2013, many cases have been brought to book.
Over 4200 arrests and convictions in 3 years. These actions have resulted into seizures of contraband ivory at our major entry and exit ports and reduced the level of poaching.
“Our elephants are dying every day to meet the insatiable appetite of the ivory trade. We are appealing for support in our mission to end the trade and for the world to join us in spreading the message that elephants are worth more alive than dead,” said Omondi.
