Politicians and government officials have vowed to ensure Mau water tower is restored.

Speaking during the burial of former Transport and Licensing Board (TLB) chair Hassan ole Kamwaro’s burial in Oloropil, Narok North, the politicians led by former Prime Minister Raila Odinga said they would be backing the government in evicting those who have encroached on Mau forest.

Raila said there was need to find an urgent solution to the degraded Maasai Mau forest in order to save lives in Kenya and beyond and the famous Maasai Mara game reserve which is known worldwide for its spectacular wildebeest migration.

He also rooted for the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) committee which is set to hand over their report to the President, saying the committee holds the solution to some of the problems facing the country today.

Environment Cabinet Secretary Keriako Tobiko reiterated his earlier stance that there was no going back on restoration of Maasai Mau forest. —KNA
