KWS to recruit 600 rangers

01 October 2013, 17:03 Wilshere

Nakuru - The Kenya wildlife Service (KWS) is set to recruit 600 game rangers in a bid to conserve wildlife in all the sanctuaries in the country.

According to KWS Director, William Kiprono, the new recruits will help reduce poaching that has been rampant recently.

“We want to reduce the number of poachers and that’s why we want to recruit more rangers in our park,” he noted.

Speaking on Monday in Nakuru during his one day tour at the park, Kiprono said that the move will boost patrol of rangers at the park.


Kiprono said that the most affected wildlife animals are rhinos and elephants saying they have taken the initiative to relocate some of them to other sanctuaries.

“The most affected animals are rhinos and elephants and that’s why we have been relocating them to safer sanctuaries,” he said.

The KWS director also noted that only credible people will be employed during the recruitment process.

He also urged members of the public to help KWS in the fight against poaching saying it stands to improve the economy of the country.

Kiprono said that the government remains committed to safeguard wildlife in all parks.
