Two elderly herders were charged on Friday before a Nanyuki court with being in possession of elephant tusks valued at Sh1 point 2million.
Lokale Lemiliko, 54, and Mayunga Lengolei, 56, denied the charged before senior resident magistrate Evans Ngigi.
They were accused of dealing with four pieces of elephant tusks weighing 14kg on September 14 at Kimanjo village, Laikipia North.
The tusks are trophies of endangered wildlife species.
The prosecution said the two were transporting the game trophies using a motorcycle at 8:30pm without a permit from the Kenya Wildlife Service.
The court released the two on Sh1million bond and a surety of a similar amount.
The hearing has been set for December 12.
They could not execute the bond immediately and were remanded in prison until September 28, when the case will be mentioned.
Last month, a Nanyuki court jailed David Gitonga Mwariama for five years and ordered him to pay a Sh1 million fine after he was convicted of possessing elephant tusks valued at Sh4 point 3 million.
