  1. smart events these are.There is no time for ease and comfort;it is time to dare and endure.Let us keep our biodiversity in a safe and habitable environment.

  2. Hello colleagues and stakeholders of Nairobi National Park who are extremely determined and resolute to protect the beauty of Nairobi city together with its biodiversity. Nairobi town is a city in the sun with mutually exclusive attributes such as National Park which is located on the southern part of the city facing Ngong Hills and Amboseli National Park.
    Whilst city population has overstretched its limits within a short period of time, causing incessant traffic jam, consequently high pollution with energy wastage, the government has done a remarkable job on improvement of infrastructure in the city including Thika Super highway to facilitate quick economic activities in the City and beyond. While continuing with the process on the southern bypass, the bottleneck is our beautiful Nairobi National Park which we must protect through thick and thin.
    We need to remind the government that as much as we appreciate its economic activity to improve the infrastructure network in the city, there is significant social footprint in the southern bypass which must be considered. The construction of southern bypass through Nairobi
    National Park will not be sustainable as it will interfere with biodiversity (flora and fauna) in the park. Already it is evidenced in the ongoing construction of dual carriage between KWS gate and Bomas of Kenya Langata road. Baboons that used cross the road from the
    park to steal food from the near homes are now starving and more so they are being hit by speeding vehicles frequently on the highway.

    We need to remind the government further that an economic activity can only be sustainable when it does not impact on the environmental resources so that they continue to be available for future generation. Therefore the government should try to limit the environmental damage in the Nairobi National Park.
    We further request the government to shelve its plans to construct dual carriage between Bomas of Kenya through Ongata Rongai town to Kiseria town as this will have major impact on the biodiversity of Nairobi National Park. If the government must construct dual carriage between Bomas of Kenya and Kiserian let it be through Karen shopping center.
    In view of the above, l would call upon all stakeholders, youth, middle age, old age, international community, NEMA etc to veto southern bypass construction which will destroy the beauty of our National Park. Thanks. John Bob Awiti – Migori County
