There was excitement in the conservation fraternity when it was reported in the Standard on May 2 that the DPP, Keriako Tobiko, had declared that he now regarded wildlife poaching as an economic crime.
As an organised crime, coordination with other government agencies is needed, the problem being too big to be handled by KWS alone. Social media was abuzz with gratitude for the DPP and the Judiciary.
