Kenyan environmentalist and Nobel laureate, Wangari Maathai, says the East African country is rapidly sliding toward an ecological disaster. Maathai says CORRUPTION AND MISMANAGEMENT are responsible for accelerating the pace of the crisis.In a fiery speech, Wangari Maathai blasted Kenyan politicians and business leaders for not doing their part to protect the country’s forests, rivers, and wetlands from misuse and over-development.Recent news reports in Kenya have warned of worsening power and water shortages in the country.Lack of adequate rainfall caused by climate change, deforestation, and development of wetlands in recent years has been severe enough to shut down major power plants. Kenyans say corrupt officials at water companies often divert whatever water is available to higher-paying customers, leaving poor people with no clean water at all.
IT IS VERY SAD TO KNOW THAT EVERYTHING HAS TO BE BLAMED ON CORRUPTION…WHEN WILL THIS EVER END?
IS KENYA HEADED TO ECOLOGICAL DISASTER?
