Police nab Prado ferrying sandalwood worth Ksh.2.5M


Police in Samburu County impounded a Prado reg L  that was caught ferrying sandalwood worth Ksh.2.5 million.

Samburu County Commissioner John Korir said the sandalwood was being transported in a Toyota Prado from Samburu East through Maralal town to Laikipia County.

According to the county commissioner, unscrupulous traders have been coming to the county to persuade residents cut down sandalwood trees.

“This tree of sandalwood is a type of tree that is rarely found in many places so if they can preserve their forest it will be a big heritage in the coming days maybe tourists can visit us and provide money which will benefit us,” he said.
