US govt applauds Malawi for burning Ivory

269

The US Government has congratulated the Malawi government for destroying about 2.6 tons of ivory on Monday.

In a message on Facebook, the United States (US) said the K5 billion bonfire has sent a clear message to ivory traffickers and their customers that Malawi will not tolerate illegal wildlife trade.

The US also suggested that Malawi is taking part in a worldwide campaign against poaching since the Americans have also destroyed approximately 7 tons of ivory in the past three years.

African elephant populations have declined by about 20 percent in the last decade to just over 400,000 and the US government says only a worldwide solution will stop wildlife poaching and wildlife crime.

However, the congratulatory message by the US government has not been welcomed by Malawians and most of them wondered why the country should be commended after failing to utilise a good opportunity.

Eddie Naming’ona said: “This is “lose lose” situation and we are being congratulated? When blood diamonds were flooding the West, why was there no massive destruction of these diamonds to show the blood diamond traders the West meant business? Such double standards.

“Malawi could have used this ivory and fund the game reserves and prevent this from happening again. The one thing a thief hates is his loot being stolen. Poachers would have hated to see Malawi use proceeds from their loot. Now that would be sweet revenge but today we lost elephants as well as burned K5bn. Game reserves are still grossly underfunded and poachers are back in business. This was not in the best interest of Malawi. In a few years, we will burn another K5bn in the name of “we sure showed those poachers!”

JM Dzonzi said:  “I am finding it out of order and very awkward to congratulate Malawi for burning about MKW5 billion to show ivory traffickers that we are not going to entertain illegal ivory traders. How many hospitals and clinics could have been stocked with medicine if we sold it. Missed opportunity.”

Others however were in support of government’s decision to burn the ivory arguing that Malawi would have been involved in illegal business if it had sold the ivory.

Rasheed Malandula said:  “This is good; Malawi really has shown to the world that we are serious in wildlife conservation. There is no way these ivories would be sold on black market. Government cannot promote black market.”

Laurent Kalonga said: “it’s illegal and there is no market for this….u want the whole state to look for a black market???”

  4. ….I presume that ivory in any way is not money or it is worthless..How can they burn it instead of selling it and get money to buy drugs or maize…..
    amangotinamiza kuti ivory ndi deal…!

  5. Amene apanga ma comnt onyoza ndinu zitsiruuu!!!!mene mumava zikuwotchedwa osakanena kut mwapeza nsika wake bwanji?mukamagulitsa za black market mukuganiza nda boma yomwe izitero????nonses!!

  6. China or any country kaya even if thy can offer to pay 1 trillion dollars the Malawian authority cant go on with this.kodi ivoryyo ku china ko ingatumizidwe paufiti kapena.coz that ivory can not cross rhe border. Muzimbabwe or Mozambique sizingadutsei.olo munthu kuti upite ku southafrica or overseas ndi galu wako wapakhomo naye akuyenera kupangiridwa veterinary papers,so what abt nyanga zanjovu?zidutsa kuti?musaiwale kuti there is no port in malawi,and there is no direct flights from malawi to china.so to transport this deal u have to use Mozambique, tanzania kapena southafrican ports, zomwe zili zosatheka coz mungaitokosole Interpol nkunjatidwapooo

  7. That is bullshit what the government of Malawi did, when will our leaders wake up in their slumbered life and stop being the puppets of the western countries? By destroying the Ivories what did the government gain? Stop being so foolish and turn the other cheek, change and learrange your ways not just being like an Ox which is going to the chambers of death. Wake up my country and be independent.

  8. Hahaha is this a joke or what? Malo moti mupeze msika ndikugulitsa as government ndikugula Chimanga mmmm. USA yangoti zitsiru tingpdziyamikira and Bwampini Ali pompo mutu dendekere eish. Munayenera kugulitsa ndikuika malamulo akhwima kuti ena asapezeke akuphanso nyama.

  11. What are they trying to achieve? that’s #headless!!
    Could have sold them , find money to help children out there who have no support than burning them, they went to xool but unfortunately enough they beta go back there for more coz they still need help.

  13. Bad policy….we failed to protect the poor elephants at least we could have benefited from them…..by the way black market is market also, it exists and it influences the “white” market….oh by the way did you expect a “white” market in black Africa?…

  14. Government was caught in a fix here. This was a choice between a rock and a hard surface. Much as we understand that we are in poverty but we also can’t expect the whole Government start hunting for an illegal market to sell illegal ivory. The only best option left for Govt is what it has done – burn the ivory. Otherwise trying to sell the ivory could have been borrowing chicken ideas from the “Ostrich Policy”. That’s my take.

  33. Malawi citizenly are being exploited and fooled around by these so-called political leaders. Remember, during the Joyce Banda era, we were shamelessly deceived about the dump-out of countless tones of maize of which they proclaimed to have been rotten in the national granaries- but nobody could possibly trace the dumping site. Currently, we are being deceived by Peter Mtharika’s government about the combustion of Ivories that worth billions of kwacha. I really concur with some Facebook players who are of the view that this stuff might not have been burnt off- it’s a lie! What the self feeling and selfish leaders we have, they just want to impoverish the nation and enrich themselves. God forbid!!!

  34. shame on u malawian leaders!!!! may ur souls go to hell!!!!! the nation without vision!!!!!!! u will be poor until Jesus come!!!!!!!

  35. Mind u… Maiko omwe mukunenawo kuti amapangira ma cup, rings and so own… Kuti mufufuze ivory wake ndiwathu yemweyi… Opusa ndiamene amapha njovu nkumakagulitsa mwachinyengo instead of kuzisiya zizigwira ntchito yokopa alendo mdziko muno ..

  39. This Kenyan in white house is smiling! he was afraid that Malawi could have billions kwacha and get out of his katapira! Riches are illegal in African hands and business in their pockets! They got rich from our own ivory and beyond free labour through slavery now they say burn your ivory, they stand and watch us burning and they are smiling?

  42. Hahahaha # chavez… In that way u r encouraging the killin of elephants which is prohibited… Government has done a good thing and that will show people hw serious the government is on protectin wild life… That should be one of the qualities of good leadership

    • Let me ask you this; if your sister, brother or parent was dying at the hospital because of drug shortage and you couldn’t afford a pvt. hospital but there was a piece of ivory that could help you out, would you burn it and let your relative die or would you sell it? The ivory here is spilt milk. There are serious problems facing Malawians including health services. Why not take advantage of a bad situation and try to save lives? Zimenezi zikanangogulitsidwa mwachinsisi and use the money to buy food or drugs and then put strict measures to protect our animals kuti zisadzachitikenso. This is evidence that they failed to protect the animals. If they are trying to send a message by burning then they should’ve burnt fake ones….it still would’ve had the same impact.

  43. Wina wanena kuti misika ya ivory kulibe. Sizoona pali zinthu zopangidwa kuchokera ku ivory. Makampani opangmwo ivory amaitenga kuti? We have to be clever we malawians, whites doesnt want Malawi government to have money. The yawning chasm which there btn poor and the rich should not bridged. Ndiye mapulani amzungu amenewo.

    • Penapake #Brenda ndiwe ozungulira mutu. Apa akuwuza kuti China imafuna kugura nde iwe nkumafunsaso kut nsika tinakawupeza kutiko? Kapena munakagura ndi inuyo? Haha mkazi iwe

    • Guys you dont need rocket science to figure this out.Despite the fact that china can buy but this deal is impossible because Ivory trade wad banned long time ago and this is an international/all world countries agreement.malawi kungolodzedwa kugulitsa ngini imeneyo ingaone zokhoma heavy.ma sanctions okwiyitsitsa from usa n all over.think abt it kkkk

    • China or any country kaya even if thy can offer to pay 1 trillion dollars the Malawian authority cant go on with this.kodi ivoryyo ku china ko ingatumizidwe paufiti kapena.coz that ivory can not cross rhe border. Muzimbabwe or Mozambique sizingadutsei.olo munthu kuti upite ku southafrica or overseas ndi galu wako wapakhomo naye akuyenera kupangiridwa veterinary papers,so what abt nyanga zanjovu?zidutsa kuti?musaiwale kuti there is no port in malawi,and there is no direct flights from malawi to china.so to transport this deal u have to use Mozambique, tanzania kapena southafrican ports, zomwe zili zosatheka coz mungaitokosole Interpol nkunjatidwapo

  48. What was the purpose of burning these things?? I don’t think they did that. Knowing Amalawi amenewa it was just a show but they have taken them back only that since they have been deemed ‘burnt’ the money from this will not be seen. In actual fact I wonder why don’t we have keep a lot of elephants for the purposes of ivory if it can bring money to the country why not!! Osatengela enawa coz iwowo even galu amamu ika PA will coz they think it’s child…. Let’s do what can help us…

  49. A 5 billion investment in green belt initiative could have been a reasonable way to dispose off the ivory while intensifying security in our national parks so as to stop wildlife crime….. zachipongwe zachitika apa ndi uchitsiru othera2

  50. People dying of hunger, and this crazy international obligation makes you to burn millions of Kwachas, l think Tanzania would have followed a different path if they were given a chance to collect their portion.
