We are to blame for straying lions

By Victor Wachira Njagi | April 2nd 2016

Cases of lions being spotted in Nairobi and Kajiado are alarming. This just shows how far we have encroached on wildlife habitat.

The killing of the 13-year-old lion named ‘Mohawk‘caused uproar in social media, local and international media.

We need to not only protect wildlife but also their habitat to prevent human-wildlife conflict.

We cannot fail to notice efforts by wildlife conservationists and foreign organisations who help fund rehabilitation of parks and fight poaching.

Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) needs to ensure the animals roam freely in the Nairobi National Park and seal all loopholes said to be on the southern side that they use to escape.
