I am pleased to be here today. Congratulations members of the 12th parliament on your election and nomination to serve the people of Kenya.

The country depends on five major forest watersheds or “water towers” – Aberdares, Cherangani Hills, Mau Complex, Mt. Elgon and Mt. Kenya – for most of her water, energy and habitat that harbors rare and exotic species of plants and animals.
