Ostrich eggs
Two men from Tanzanian have been jailed for 25 years after they were caught with 16 ostrich eggs.
 
According to AFP, the sentence was handed on Friday after being convicted of “economic sabotage”.
 
The sale of ostrich eggs, used in traditional medicine or to make tourist gifts, is illegal in Tanzania. Judge Ismael Ngaila sentenced Matiko Marwa, 32, and Julius Marwa, 42, to 25 years each, according to a source at the Serengeti District Court Registry.
 
At the time of their arrest in December 2016, the two men said they planned to sell the eggs in neighbouring Kenya where they would be used in a purported AIDS cure.
