Tourism CS Najib Balala on Saturday declared¬†free entry to Nairobi National Park on April 14.¬†
Balala made the announcement at the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) headquarters in Lang’ata, Nairobi.
He stated that all citizens would be allowed to access¬†Nairobi National Park, Nairobi Safari Walk and Nairobi Orphanage for free on Sunday, April 14.¬†
Earlier in the day, Balala and KWS Director General Brigadier John Waweru had led a march in support of wildlife that began at the National Museums of Kenya.
The initiative dubbed Global March was started to condemn the killing and trade of elephants and rhinos.¬†
The CS explained that the walk was necessary to inspire younger people to take up action against poaching.
“This is meant to inspire our young generations and to profile the situation that if we don’t participate actively in such walks then we will lose the African elephants.¬†
We only have very few elephants in the world and we need to save them. We don’t need to trade with ivory anymore,”¬†he explained.¬†
Balala also praised KWS for their efforts in ensuring that poaching was contained.
“From 400 to below 40, that’s a great achievement for KWS and I salute you for the good work” he added.
