State must protect Mount Kenya and Aberdare forests
Anyone travelling to Nyeri from Nairobi will not fail to notice the number of mushrooming timber yards and mills along the highway and towards Othaya town.This should point to possible illegal logging activities in the neigbouring Aberdares and Mount Kenya forests in Nyeri county. If this is then the case, the famous water catchment and the habitats of various wildlife will soon be a thing of the past. The government should implement stern measures to protect these forests from illegal logging and save our environment.
