The Police in Kampala have arrested seven people in connection with the theft of ivory from the Uganda Wildlife Authority stores.
Last year, the ivory scam led to the temporary suspension of UWA executive director Dr. Andrew Sseguya, following disappearance of ivory worth 3 billion shillings.
According to preliminary police reports, the group and others still at large, connived and broke into UWA stores at Kamwokya using duplicated keys.
The suspects were store keepers allegedly collaborating with one Mohamed Opolot the supposed buyer.
Speaking to media, the Kampala Metropolitan police spokesperson Patrick Onyango says the incident happened between April and July.
