Hawks Arrest Three Elephant Tusk Pedlers

GAUTENG – In an effort to safeguard South African endangered species and natural resources, the Hawks’ Wildlife -Trafficking team complemented by the National Intervention Unit from Pretoria arrested three suspects on Tuesday for possession of an elephant tusk.
The team detained Radius Mncube (29), Mkhululi Ngwenya (52), and Mgcini Mncube (35), in Bramley, Johannesburg, in a sting operation when they were apparently looking for a customer to buy their ill-gotten possession which they had reportedly set a R400 000-00 price tag to.
