KENYA'S tourism and wildlife minister has reportedly announced that wildlife poachers in the country will face the death penalty.
According to reports, the tough new law will be fast-tracked to help preserve Kenya's wildlife populations. Kenya is home to lions, black rhinos, ostriches, hippos, buffalos, giraffe and zebra. Last year 69 elephants and nine rhinos were killed.
However, this move could cause conflict with the UN, which is against the death penalty for all crimes worldwide.
