A man was on Sunday denied bail by a Narok court for illegally possessing seven pieces of ivory worth Sh1.52 Million.
Narok Resident Magistrate Zainabu Abdul said the suspect owned the ivory without the knowledge of Kenya Wildlife Service.
The magistrate added that Amos Siloma dealt with wildlife trophies without a license from the Kenya Wildlife Service, which was an additional offence.
“Keeping wildlife trophies in his house without a license from KWS is not allowed,” Abdul said.
Siloma was accused of having committed the offence on February 18 at Narosura area of Narok North Sub County.
Siloma denied all the charges and was remanded at Narok police station.
His case will be mentioned on Tuesday.
