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.deforestation 33333In 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?

    MP’s should stop politicizing natural resources,just because they have power and all they should stop.I still think it is because of them that the rest of the Kenyans(innocent at that) are going to face power rationing,water rationing and food shortages..
    But with prayer and abit of change of heart from our leaders something might happen
