Malawi declares war on wildlife crime

President Prof. Peter Mutharika has warned all those involved in wildlife crime Malawi is now fully equipped and ready and able to stop them.

Mutharika made a statement on Saturday at Kamuzu International Airport (KIA) in Lilongwe on his return from the Congressional International Conventional Gala (ICCG) in the United States of America.

"We now have enough resources to combat crime against wildlife and I warn all poachers, ivory smugglers and those who destroy wildlife that this is now war; your time is over," said Mutharika who has also been honoured at the gala as a gallant fighter of crime against wildlife.

He also asked all Malawians to join in the fight against wildlife criminals.

This is the sort of leadership and commitment from the top that Africa needs to win this battle.
