The Principal Secretary (Ps) for State Department Natural Resources in the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources Dr. Margaret Mwakima has urged civil servants to embrace the spirit of committment, honesty and care while performing their duties. Dr. Mwakima also challenged them to work as a team in order to achieve good results. The Ps said this when addressing members of staff of the Kenya Forest Research Institute (KEFRI) at the institution’s headquarters when on a familiarization tour on 3rd June 2016.

The Ps said that despite inadequate budgetary allocation KEFRI stood out as one of the best performing state agencies. She particularly pointed out the stringent use of resources by the institution which she termed as above board.

The Ps recognized that KEFRI has been operating for several months without a Board of Directors a situation she said the Ministry was addressing.

On the other hand the Director Dr. Ben Chikamai thanked the Ps for the relentless support her office was offering the institution. The Director said the institution continues to be the leading researcher in forestry and allied natural resources in the region.
