POLICE are holding a suspect arrested in an operation over the weekend to crackdown on the illegal trafficking of ivory, a top Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA) official has said.
â€œThis indicates that illegal activities are going on,â€ said Sam Mwandha, UWAâ€™s conservation director. â€œIt gives us a wake-up call to prevent poaching.â€
Mwandha, however, declined to name the suspect, saying it would undermine efforts to fight trafficking. He said the ivory weighing about 30 kilogrammes was seized in Kampala, Kihihi and Gulu
