Two men have pleaded guilty to having 6kg of ivory carvings worth Sh600,000.
Reuben Muthui and Peter Enkai confessed that on August 17 they had six pieces of worked ivory at Karen shopping centre, Nairobi.
They also pleaded guilty to dealing in government trophies without a licence.
KWS lawyer asked the court to defer the case to next week as the ivory has been taken to the National Museums of Kenya for verification and the report is yet to be produced.
Kibera resident magistrate Jane Kamau ordered the two remanded until next week Tuesday when the case will be mentioned.
