Conservationist Richard Leakey resigned as head of Kenya's Wildlife Service for a second time yesterday, saying he could not work under new wide-ranging presidential restrictions, Reuter reports from Nairobi.

Mr Leakey said that since President Daniel arap Moi reinstated him on 10 March, after a 14 January resignation, he had tried in vain to meet him to raise what he felt were some outstanding conservation issues. He quit in January after government ministers accused him of racism, corruption and mismanagement.
