A historic location where 12 tonnes of ivory were burnt by the former Kenyan President Daniel Arap Moi in 1989. Most of it was intercepted before entering the market, stored then burnt to show Kenya’s commitment to the conservation of elephants, and zero tolerance to ivory trade. It was used again a few more times with the last being in 2016 to burn 105 tonnes of ivory, 1.35 tonnes of rhino horn, exotic animal skin along with other products such as sandalwood and medicinal bark.
