State must recover grabbed land

At a workshop for Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) wardens and scientists, I lauded the management for the decision to take such a high level workshop to far away Garissa.

Most State Agencies don’t. Mombasa, the Coastal city of comfort and leisure, takes preference.

The decision to bring their conservation discussions far North would not only provide business to the town, but also substantially raise public awareness on matters of conservation. But this was a side issue.

My key compliment was elsewhere. KWS controls a whopping 10 per cent of Kenya’s land mass.
