Were you working with other people?
Yes, sometimes I would work with other people. But sometimes I would work alone.
Who did you sell the tusks to?
I could take the tusks to businessmen, the cartels, along the coastal region of Kenya, in a town called Mombasa. That's about 700 kilometers from where I killed them.
How did you become introduced to people to buy the tusks?
I asked my friend in Nairobi if he could tell me how I could go and meet this cartel in Mombasa.
Can you tell me about the people that you met?
We would just communicate. What brought us together was the business. We would join up together.
How much money did you earn by selling the tusks?
With 1 kilogram of these tusks, I could get 5,000 shillings [$58 USD].
[Editor's Note: On the Black Market, ivory is valued at $1,800 per kilo.]
How did you spend the money?
I had young kids, I could divide this money to meet the needs of my family -- to buy food and pay for my child to go to boarding school. This amount could change things.
Did your wife and children know how you were earning that money?
