Mau Forest regains its forest cover

26 August 2013, 14:21 Wilshere

Kenya Forest Service Commandant Osborn Ndunde has said the Mau forest complex has regained its former good forest cover.

Ndunde said that the KFS has been able to fight deforestation in the region, a thing he added has led to thriving of the Mau forest.

“We are very happy to see our Mau complex has regained its beautiful nature which is good” he said

Speaking on Sunday during a thanks giving ceremony for five uniform police officers at Christ the King Cathedral,  Ndunde said that it was through proper propagation of  Mau that has enabled the forest to gain its lost glory.

He also noted that the rivers at the forest had broken their backs due to the heavy down pour being experienced at the Mau.

However, he urged the public and the local residents in the region to be mindful of the forest not to slip back into distraction. 

In a quick rejoinder, retired commander of KFS John Kimani who was also present at the ceremony thanked the task force which was formed in 2009 to safe guard the forest against any further distraction.

Kimani said it was a collective responsibility of every Kenyan to ensure the local forests are well preserved.

He also thanked the county government for the role they have played in helping to stop forest distraction in the county.
