    FOUR people have been arrested in connection with the poaching of elephants in the Caprivi Region.

    The carcasses of 18 elephants were recently discovered in this region after they were killed for their ivory. Of the 18 killed elephants, 13 were reportedly killed in the Mamili National Park over the past four months.

    The news of elephant poaching in Namibia, which has been praised internationally for its conservation policy, has rocked the conservation community.

    Police spokesperson Deputy Commissioner Edwin Kanguatjivi yesterday confirmed the arrests.

    The suspects were released on bail of N$5 000 each by the Katima Mulilo Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.

    One of the suspects, a young Caprivi resident, is claiming that he was tortured by the police after his arrest.

    Linus Samwele, the uncle of suspect Dasken Liwakala, yesterday said that Liwakala was arrested in the Musanga area near Katima Mulilo on October 22 on the suspicion that he had killed three elephants.

    What a shame! With a bail of N$5 000, that is crazy too.
