What is going on in Chyulu Hills on the slopes of Mt Kilimanjaro is extremely worrying. The amount of logging , charcoal burning and bush meat hunting is something that has not been seen in recent times.
The expansive Tsavo East & West includes the Mzima springs which has always been protected and it is a major source of water for Mombasa , Taita Taveta and parts of Kilifi & Kwale.
The environmental destruction going on can no longer be ignored. A Not for profit organization Sheldrick Wildife Trust is singlehandedly fighting to save Tsavo , they cannot do it alone . Where is KWS? , Whjere are the Forest authorities ? Where are the county authorities in both Makueni,& Taita Taveta? Why is Mombasa county not taking any interest? Where is Jumuia ya makunti za Pwani ?
I am afraid our generation have been pathetic in protecting the environment for the future generation.The CS for Environment must lead this fight from the front , KWS Director General must equally stand up and deal with this calamity.
I weep for Tsavo, We must stop the logging and charcoal burning . We must save Chyulu Hills & Tsavo ecosystem.
I am doing my bit as an ordinary Kenyan, what about you yes you with a position in government to deal with matters wildlife and forests with full government support and powers to prosecute to boot. Get down to work and do your bit.
