Monkeys from the nearby aberdare forest invade a farm and destroy cedar trees worth millions

3rd July, 2014

Titus Muthui Ndirangu from Magayu-ini villag e in tetu now wants the kenya wildlife service to intervene as he has been unable to fight off the monkeys at night. The monkeys have been feeding off the barks of the cedar trees. The farmer risks losing more than 500 trees which could dry up after the mokeys stripped them bare. The sale of the cedar trees has been his main income generating activity since his retirement from the civil service. His neighbours say they are also puzzled by the behaviour of the animals which usually eat bananas or maize.
