KeNHA Plants Trees In Mlolongo Weighbridge

    The Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA) team participated in a tree-planting exercise at Mlolongo Weighbridge.

    The team was led by the Director in charge of Maintenance, Eng. Daniel Cherono and Director in charge of Development, Eng. Henry Gakuru.

    This is an initiative by the Authority to double the number of trees planted last year from 67,000 to 134,000 across the country.

    This comes after President William Ruto reiterated the need for environmental conservation through tree planting to counter climate change which has brought about a devastating drought.

    Ruto said that his administration will lead from the front by embarking on an aggressive tree-planting campaign aimed at increasing the country’s e forest cover by five billion trees.

    “Water increment goes hand-in-hand with conserving the environment. As a government, we purpose to plant five billion trees in a bid to combat climate change.”

    The President called on all Kenyans to join in the challenge and inculcate the culture of tree planting.

    He said every Kenyan should take up the duty of planting at least 100 trees in their farms and homes in order to meet the target.
