Communication from the County Security office also confirmed that two balloon safaris were also closed in the operation.
In a letter addressed to the Park Chief Warden, the County Government said: “You have to been ordered to ensure that the above facilities are never opened unless there is a lawful command to do so, failure to which you and your sectors commanders will be taken to have refused to obey clear and lawful orders given by your superiors.”
