MEDIA STATEMENT: RODNEY LANDELA ARRESTED FOR ALLEGED INVOLVEMENT IN RHINO POACHING

Mr. Landela’s membership of the GRAA and his position on the committee are suspended with immediate effect. This is in line with the Association’s disciplinary code which is enshrined in its constitution. The GRAA views such alleged criminal misconduct by its members in an extremely serious light and we thus stand in full support of the ensuing legal procedure.

Misconduct by any of our members will not be tolerated. Coming a few days before we gather for World Ranger Day on the 31st July to celebrate the work of our noble profession, these allegations strike a devastating blow to the morale of rangers. We will however continue to work for those men and women of integrity that stand in defence of our precious natural heritage.

For any additional information do not hesitate to contact the GRAA.
