Wildlife crime is out of control and the survival of many iconic species are now threatened and, in the not too distant future, some species such as rhinos, which have existed for millions of years could become extinct. This will have a devastating impact on South Africa’s tourism economy, which in turn affects employment in South Africa. Our courts and citizens MUST UNITE to do more to end the slaughter of our wildlife, so they may continue to survive, a national heritage for all future generations.

Our specific concern is the impending bail hearing in Case No. L105-13, in the matter State vs. SIPHESIHLE NHLENGETHWA. The accused is charged with the serious crimes of illegal hunting, possession of firearm and ammunition and murder.
