KWS rangers were right to shoot lion

By Basilio Chabari | April 2nd 2016

I read with utter shock comments on social media condemning the killing of a stray lion by the KWS rangers on Wednesday.

One thing some Kenyans failed to realise was that the lion is a dangerous animal. The rangers killed the lion to prevent it from causing further harm after it attacked a boda boda rider.

I salute the rangers who acted out of human interest after they realised the much-needed tranquilisers to immobilise the lion were not forthcoming.

KWS should now ensure the electric fences are working to prevent the animals from escaping from the park.

The education system in Kenya indeed needs to be reformed. In the current curriculum, students are bogged down with a lot of subjects that have little impact on their practical lives.
