Cabinet Secretary Keriako Tobiko plants a tree at the GreenBelt Movement offices when he paid courtesy call to them

Environment and Forestry Cabinet Secretary Mr. Keriako Tobiko has  paid tribute  to the late Nobel Peace Laureate Prof. Wangari Maathai’s Greenbelt Movement (GBM) for her conservation efforts.

The CS who visited the GBM offices in Nairobi urged all conservation organizations to step up their environmental agenda to support national priorities of universal health, food security, manufacturing and affordable housing.

Mr. Tobiko planted a symbolic tree at the GBM compound to signify new cooperation with the organization in re-energizing the environment agenda.

He outlined his Ministry’s commitment to tackle rampant deforestation in the country adding that environment is life and the role of trees could not be wished away.

The CS also visited Geographic Information System (GIS) lab for first-hand information on every location of Greenbelt Movement in 25 counties in Kenya.
