The Star (Kenya) - - News -

The Kenya For­est Ser­vice clinched three awards in the Cen­tral re­gion agri­cul­tural show which ended yesterday in Ny­eri town. The KFS was recog­nised for en­ergy and con­ser­va­tion, best com­mu­nity ser­vice, and emerged third best in tech­nol­ogy ap­pli­ca­tion. A fort­night ago, the KFS was the over­all ti­tle win­ner dur­ing the Mom­basa In­ter­na­tional Show sweep­ing the en­vi­ron­men­tal cat­e­gory tro­phies. Di­rec­tor Emilio Mugo said the agency aims to achieve a 10 per cent tree cover be­fore 2030. The tree cover stands at 7.2 per cent from 1.7 per cent in 2002. Last year the KFS dis­trib­uted more than 150 mil­lion seedlings to farm­ers, pri­vate grow­ers and other stake­hold­ers.
