Swift Action Taken After What President Ruto Ordered His CS To Do While In DRC Today

In a statement issued while in the neighboring democratic republic of Congo (DRC) where he has been since yesterday night (Sunday Night), president William Ruto issued firm orders to ministry of environment cabinet secretary.

This is after learning that there was ongoing uprooting of the rare, sacred baobab trees in Kilifi County which were being bought and exported to Europe, a situation that had triggered mixed reactions among kenyans.

And now, the cabinet secretary for the ministry of environment Soipan Tuya has come out to implement the presidential orders swiftly and made an order to government officials.

As The Standard reports, the cabinet secretary has ordered the Kenya forest service to immediately cancel the license that was issued for the Baobab trees to be extracted.

"Environment CS Soipan Tuya directs Kenya Forest Service to cancel movement permit that allowed transportation of Baobab trees in Kilifi County," the report stated.

Ruto had ordered her to ensure that the process is done in a manner that aligns to his agenda to plant billions of trees in the next few years.
