The director general of wild life Conservation and Tourism, major general, Philip Chol Majak told Eye Radio sundown program that poaching has become very high all over the Country.

“Poaching was very high wherever the government forces were deployed and the situation on the side of the rebellion,” said Maj Chol.

Mr. Philip Chol said rangers have been redeployed to other duties.

Major General, Philip Chol said his department is on process to deploy wildlife forces to protect the animal life.
