Tanzania sentences four Chines rhino horn smugglers to 20 years in jail

Mbeya — Four Chinese were yesterday sentenced to 20 years in jail after being convicted of smuggling 11 rhino horns worth Sh902 million.

The Chinese nationals were also ordered to pay Sh10.8 billion in fines

They were detained  on 17th November  last month at the Tanzania-Malawi border post of Kasumulu in Kyela District and were found to be hiding the horns in a fake fuel tank in the Toyota Hilux that they were driving from Malawi.

May there be many more sentences like that one handed out.
