President Kikwete promises to resume Anti Poaching Operations in Tanzania

President Kikwete promised to resume the controversial anti poaching operation ‘Tokomeza’ which was halted in November after it became known that officials on the ground had subverted the objectives of anti poaching and took aim at pastoralists and cattle herders.

Only last week Deputy Minister Nyalandu told a press conference that at least 60 elephants had been killed in various national parks and game reserves in the country after the suspension of operation tokomeza which was aimed at fighting poaching and those behind the callous trade.
