AKTF Team Arrests 53 (July 11, 2016)

The AKTF team & MC rangers had a very successful joint patrol at Nyekweri forest. We managed to arrest 53 people who are involved in burning the charcoal (some are the locals who are inviting & hosting these people). Many makeshift houses & charcoal kilns were destroyed during the operation that was well supported by the community elders & the youths. We would like to thank all the organizations involved that includes,Kenya Police,Administration police, Narok county rangers, Oloirien group ranch committee members & other members of the community. Indeed all these couldn’t be successful without their tireless effort. We hope to continue working together by organizing more joint patrols to save this important forest.
