CS Malonza: Plan to end elephant invasion on course

Tourism and Wildlife CS Penina Malonza has said that her ministry was working with the Treasury to find funds that will ensure Kitui South National Reserve is fenced to prevent the elephants from getting out.

She noted that she would follow up and ensure the menace is sorted calling for tolerance from locals and leaders.

Recently two legislators from Ukambani have been on Tourism Cabinet Secretary Penina Malonza over human-wildlife conflict.

The two, Kitui woman representative Irene Kasalu and Makueni Senator Daniel Maanzo called upon the CS to solve the elephant invasion in Kitui and Makueni counties which has caused a lot of losses.

On matters of politics Malonza noted that the Kamba community needs to support the government to benefit fully from development projects.

She blasted leaders fighting the three percent house levy stating that they are not interested in the country’s development.

“Let me tell you my fellow Kambas we can’t stay out of the government again and lack development. We have to work with the government for the betterment of our people,” said Malonza.

“I am ready for a salary cut for the sake of development those leaders inciting you to reject the bill don’t want to see development,” she added.

Her sentiments were shared by nominated Senator Tabitha Mutinda who said that the bill will solve poverty in the country.
