Stars and Stripes for Ezemvelo

On its own, the recent donation by the US Department of State in South Africa of a 4 x 4, ‘crime scene’ trailer to Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife (‘Ezemvelo’) in Pretoria was a generous and highly practical gift.

Fighting for Ian Player's Wilderness Legacy!

 The coincidence is deeply ironic. At a time when people in South Africa and worldwide reflect on the loss of one of the world’s most celebrated conservationists, Dr Ian Player, frantic efforts are being made to save one of his finest achievements; the establishment of the Wilderness area of iMfolozi Park inside KZN’s premier Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park (HiP).

Community Farm Cited as Conservation Business Flagship


Never has the cry been so persuasive and authoritative. Government must now act on the very real business opportunities that Conservation offers rural communities, especially land claimants occupying suitable wildlife land. For too long, decision-makers have equated conservation and wildlife as anti-development and therefore been accorded a relative backseat.

Two Arrested Suspect's Case Remanded

23 July 2012

EZEMVELO KZN WILDLIFE

MEDIA RELEASE: TWO ARRESTED SUSPECTES’ CASE REMANDED

The case of two rhino poaching suspects who were arrested on Friday by the Durban Organised Crime Unit has been remanded to 02 August 2012. The case will be heard in the Johannesburg Magistrate Court.

Bheki Msweli and Malusi Dubazane were arrested following a year long investigation by both the Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife (Ezemvelo) and the Durban Organised Crime Unit.

They appeared in the Mtubatuba Magistrate Court today and were charged with contravening section 57 (1) of the Environmental Management Biodiversity Act 10 of 2004. The charge is dealing in rhino horn.

Bheki Msweli works for Ezemvelo under the Zululand Wildlife Investigation Unit. He is not working for the Anti Poaching Unit as per some reports. He was transferred to this Unit mid 2011 as part of the strategy to monitor his movements and activities. The strategy seems to have worked and it is hoped that his arrest will lead to more arrests.

Malusi Dubazane comes from Kwa-Biyela Area. In 2010 he was arrested together with other three men but was acquitted due to lack of evidence. Two of his accomplices were sentenced to jail terms.

M/M Media Release No. 15. Two Rhino Poachers arrested: Case remanded
