Rhino poachers in KZN court

2012-07-23 16:40

Durban - Two men charged with dealing in rhino horn appeared in the Mtubatuba Magistrate's Court on Monday, Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife said.

Spokesperson Musa Mntambo said the trial of Bheki Msweli and Malusi Dubazane was postponed to 2 August, when the matter would be heard in the Johannesburg Magistrate's Court.

Msweli and Dubazane were arrested on Friday after a year-long investigation by Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife and the Durban organised crime unit.

Dubazane was arrested in Melmoth and Msweli was arrested in Mtubatuba.

Msweli was transferred to the anti-poaching unit last year as part of a strategy to monitor his movements and activities.

In 2010, Dubazane was arrested with three other men on a rhino poaching charge but was acquitted because of a lack of evidence. The other two were sentenced to jail terms.

    Maybe we should cut off their "horns" and let's see how they feel....
