Other counties launching afforestation activities include Makueni and Machakos.

Governor Joseph Ole Lenku on Friday led the Council of Governors, the Ministry of Devolution and the Foundations of Equality and Kengen to plant trees in the Entarara forest, a watershed area in South Kajiado.

Governor Lenku and his colleagues Francis Kimemia (Nyandarua), Wilbur Otichilo (Vihiga) and Devolution Minister Eugene Wamalwa took the opportunity to urge other counties to formulate Climate Change Implementation Policies that create a Climate Change Fund that will help fund response responses. that.

“We have important catchment areas that need conservation. I urge our people to push our forest from the current 7.1% forest level which we have grown from 3.6%, four years ago,” Governor Lenku said.

Governor Kimemia called for the conservation of forest conservationists through money and heavy fines for polluters saying we are losing a lot as a country in the payment of a carbon loan.

He said counties that had invested heavily in water source areas that were supplying other parts of the country and water should be given a percentage of the profits made.

Mr Wamalwa also called on the county to set up a Climate Change Fund to promote environmental conservation efforts and increase the forest by 10 percent proposed.

“We have counties like Kajiado that have increased coverage from 3.6% to 7.1% in four years. Unfortunately, some counties have 1%. They need to pull on their socks,” said Mr Wamalwa.

Dr Otichilo, an environmental expert, took the public through scientific reasons why climate change has caused so much global warming.

Governor Lenku said the Entarara forest was the epicenter of medicinal plants and urged those who had invaded various river areas in the county to leave voluntarily or risk deportation.
