In a joint effort, the conservation body and the Taita Hills Wildlife Sanctuary arrested nine illegal grazers and detained a vehicle and over 5,000 head of cattle.
This brings to over 40 the number of illegal grazers so far arrested in the park in the past two weeks.
Tsavo National Park, regarded as the largest ecosystem in Kenya, has lately been hit by livestock incursion from outside the region.
The park’s Conservation Area Assistant Director Wilson Korir said the suspects would be arraigned in court once investigation is complete.
He said the suspects were apprehended near Sala Gate in the northern part of Tsavo East National Park and Taita Hills Wildlife Sanctuary.
