Will naming Africa's small arms suppliers to stop poaching?
Realising the significant role played by the easy accessibility of small arms such as AK47 rifles, sub-machine guns and heavy machine guns which in turn aids and abetting the poaching of rhino and elephant, we will shift our focus to exposing the countries that supply such arms to Africa.
My hope is that these suppliers can realise that apart from fueling politically-based civil strife, the arms they supply to Africa are also responsible for the massive and reckless slaughter of not only elephant and rhinos, but all animals that have commercial value across Africa. It wont be long before we publish the first instalment.
