Malawi is on 23rd June set to burn ivory worth K 27 million in Mangochi district.

According Mangochi Police Public Relations Officer Rodrick Maida the burning of the ivory is in compliance with the court order obtained during the sentencing of a convict who was found in possession of the ivory illegally.

This will be a second time Malawi has burned ivory, in March this year 2.6 tonnes of ivory were burnt in Mzuzu after a court ordered its destruction, despite a cross-border dispute over whether the elephant tusks smuggled from Tanzania should be saved as legal evidence against poachers.

The elephant tusks were set alight outside a nature sanctuary in the small northern city of Mzuzu, 480 kilometres (300 miles) from the administrative capital Lilongwe.
