ANIMAL SKINS SEIZED IN MCHINJI
Wildlife crime and trafficking in Malawi isn't exclusive to ivory or rhino horn. Recently, Malawian Wilson Thole was found with animals skins and arrested in Mchinji, close to the Zambian border. He was charged with possession and dealing of 17 pieces - six duikers, two civets, one otter, one hyena, five genets, one serval and one baboon. Thole was found guilty of both charges and sentenced to two years behind bars.
