Decline in tourists blamed on insecurity in the country

06 August 2014, 17:31 Wilshere

Nakuru - Kenya Wild Service (KWS) Director, William Kiprono has said that insecurity in the country has greatly affected the number of tourist visiting the local parks.

Kiprono said parks in the coastal region have recorded a decline in tourists for the past few months following cases of insecurity.

Speaking at Nakuru National Park after a meeting with the officials of the Park, the KWS Director said that they have set up necessary measures to ensure there is enough security for tourists who visit the parks in the country.

“Our tourists have nothing to fear because we have taken measures that will guarantee the security of visitors at the parks,” he said.

At the same time, Kiprono said that cases of poaching at Nakuru National Park had gone down significantly following increased patrols by KWS rangers.

He also said that they have a helicopter in place which has been monitoring the movement of rhinos within the Park, adding that they are also winning the fight against poaching.

He also thanked the local community for working closely with the KWS rangers in the fight against poaching.

“I am happy with the local community for helping us to  fight poaching in this Park which is very recommendable of them,” he said.
