Nambahu against bail for suspected poachers

The Deputy Minister of Environment and Tourism Tommy Nambahu is concerned about the rate at which suspected poachers are granted bail, saying it defeats the purpose of anti-poaching efforts.

He feels suspected poachers should be refused bail if Namibia is to win the fight against poaching of endangered wildlife such as rhino and elephant.

“Criminals out there – be warned. We will not leave any stone unturned. We are going to sharpen our weapons. Don’t come up with these kinds of stories that you need bail – because your wife is pregnant while you are in the dock. When you were poaching did you not realise that you had a pregnant wife or what?” Nambahu fumed on Friday when he received equipment worth N$10 000 for anti-poaching operations from Bushwhackers.
