Government to partner with communities in taming forest fires

Forest fires have for some time been ravaging parts of Mau Forest and other conservancies within the expansive Rift Valley region. With the destruction caused by the fires felt far and wide amid the adverse effects caused by Climate Change, Forestry Cabinet Secretary Soipan Tuya is in a mad rush to find ways of mitigating the outbreak of frequent fires in the forests. Accompanied by Forestry Principal Secretary Ephantus Kimotho Kimani, Tuya visited Kenya Forest Service (KFS) Mau Conservancy in Nakuru to explore better ways of remedying the situation that continues to deal a devastating blow to efforts by the government to increase the country’s forest cover to 30% by 2032 from the current 12.13%.
