Tourism CS Najib Balala has ordered the removal of a camp at Maasai River blocking the wildebeest migration.
The decision was arrived at after holding discussion with Governor Samuel Tunai of Narok expressing his views that the camp is very disturbing.
“I have discussed with Narok County Governor Samuel Tunai, about the camp built beside the Mara River, blocking the Wildebeest crossing. It’s very disturbing and we expect the Governor to take action and have the camp removed!” Said Balala.

The Tourism CS continued by saying how he wants the Maasai Mara National Reserve management plan that is diverted and does not come in harm’s way of the wildlife movement.
“I have also insisted that we need a Maasai Mara National Reserve Management Plan, that will not only enhance biodiversity but also protect our wildlife migratory corridors, from greed!” Said Balala.
The CS’s sentiments come at a time when the government has received information on how some people are starting business meant to drive money instead of conserving the ecosystem.
Complains have also been echoed calling for changes that will protect the reserves and ensure and stop corrupt culture in the wild.
