Ivory stolen from secure storage in Zambia

Thieves have broken into one of the high security rooms at the Zambia Wildlife Authority (ZAWA)
regional office in Livingstone and stolen more than 30 pieces of ivory tusks worth about K1 million.

Three ZAWA officers at the station and five other people, among them a local taxi driver
allegedly used to ferry the valuable commodity, have been arrested by police.

Amazing isn't it that this continues to happen. Corruption is rife. They'd be better off burning all this confiscated Ivory, thus removing any possibility of it being used for financial gain.
