While other lakes in Rift Valley are flooding, Lake Kamnarok, that once played host to 20,000 crocodiles, is drying, quickly disappearing off the map of Kenya.

Prof. Julius Tanui, acting Director General of Kenya Water Towers Agency (KWTA) has handed over the fencing site officially to the contractor at Maasai Mau. Top Choice Surveillance Limited will fence off a section of the water tower from Sierra Leone through Chebitet to Masaita area, a distance of 30 kilometers at an estimated cost of 80 million. The Agency has planned to put up an electric fence round the entire water tower covering a distance of 119 kilometers. The intermediate fence is aimed at preventing future encroachments into the water tower, allowing natural regeneration to take place, mitigating human wildlife conflict and reducing illegal extraction of natural resources.

Prof. Tanui was accompanied by the Narok South Deputy County Commissioner Mr Felix Kisalu, Joint Enforcement Unit Commander Mr Mutoro and senior government officers from both the national and county government of Narok. The team planted tree seedlings at the border in Sierra Leone where the fence will start. Two community barazas were also held at Tendwet and Soogoo centres attended by village elders and senior community members.
