Until the S African Govt stops taking retrograde steps to becoming a Third World African country it will continue.
But also, the Chinese need to stop the silliness of thinking rhino horn has properties they need. - chew their own toe and finger nails, same thing. ... just not the spiritual power of the large animal! ... but use your imagination.
