Miguna Sends this Message to DP Gachagua Following his Latest Actions & Remarks Over the Week

With the political season now behind us, it's now time to work and this has been what Kenya's second Deputy President under the new constitution Hon Rigathi Gachagua has been doing.

Recently the second in command presided over the flagging of Ksh 3.5 billion subsidized fertilizer to the regional stores across the country to help farmers plant during this short rain season. The DP also went ahead to say that he will be moving to Mombasa port to unlock the other consignment of fertilizer which was stuck at the port for it to be distributed.

What however caught the attention of most Kenyans is when Gachagua said that the Ruto administration will bring back the shamba policy which will allow people to farm in forests. This remarks seems to have raised a lot of temperature among Kenyans especially those who are fighting for the conservation of the environment and the forests at large.

His remarks seems to have also caught the attention of Canadian based lawyer Dr Miguna Miguna who has termed it as a bad idea. According to Dr Miguna, farming in forests is an idea whose implementation cannot be met by the government leave alone regulate it.

"Rigathi must avoid these kinds of roadside declarations. Farming in forests is a very bad idea." Miguna said.
