Lake Naivasha's riparian land to be restored

The riparian land around Lake Naivasha is to be rehabilitated following wanton destruction in recent years. The land will be planted with yellow acacia seedlings and papyrus plants by the Nakuru county government and environmental groups. This comes a couple of days after the Kenya Forest Service suspended ongoing subdivision and felling trees on prime land next to the lake.In the last couple of years, tens of people have invaded the riparian land, cutting down the acacia trees and papyrus plants, damaging the lake's ecosystem. CEC for Lands in Nakuru John Kihagi said the county was alarmed by the wanton destruction of the riparian land by individuals and companies. Speaking in Naivasha, Kihagi said they would involve other parties in rehabilitating the riparian land in the coming weeks. “We have embarked on rehabilitating the riparian land and the process will include planting acacia trees and papyrus,” he said. The former Naivasha MP put on notice individuals who had illegally encroached on the riparian land, telling them to voluntarily move out ahead of the rehabilitation. “We shall be working with the department of lands to help us identify the riparian boundaries so that we can make sure that the land is protected,” he said. Kihagi noted that land disputes in the county had adversely affected planned tree planting by national and county governments. https://www.the-star.co.ke/news/2023-01-02-lake-naivashas-riparian-land-to-be-restored/

              It is great to hear that the riparian land around Lake Naivasha will be restored. The wanton destruction in recent years has been a concerning issue, and it's important to take action to rehabilitate the area. Planting yellow acacia seedlings and papyrus plants is a positive step towards restoring the ecosystem and protecting the lake's biodiversity. It's encouraging to see the Nakuru county government and environmental groups working together for this cause. Restoring the riparian land will not only benefit the environment but also contribute to the overall sustainable development of the region.

                      The importance of water to man, plants and animals cannot be underestimated, making water quality one of the most important aspects of land reclamation.

                                Acacia trees, papyrus and other plant trees have been cut down, damaging the ecosystem causing much encroachment on the lake and thus planting the trees will restore the land.
