Namibia: Seized Rhino Horns Worth a Fortune – Jagger

Rhino horns confiscated from poachers are worth millions and it will be good if Namibia works with other SADC countries having huge stockpiles of horns to persuade CITES to grant them the right to sell this stock, says the Deputy Minister of Environment and Tourism (MET) Bernadette Jagger.

“I support those saying these horns must not be burned.
