In early March 2011, representatives of the Mid and Upper Ewaso Water Resource User Associations (WRUA) and the Water Resource Management Authority (WRMA) embarked on a 2 day exposure tour following the Ewaso Nyiro from its sources upstream all the way downstream to Archers Post tracking the change in river flow. It was an all round experience for over 50 members from the 17 WRUA’s that LWF works with as they traversed the district tracking rivers while marvelling at the arid landscape, vast patches of bare ground and miles of seemingly uninhabited land.

An article in the Star on February 22 referred to the collection of signatures and statements for a planned court case by the Public Works assistant minister Mwangi Kiunjuri against the government and local ranchers. The story said Kiunjiri had started collecting signatures after 30 elephants from Rumuruti forest invaded farms within Muhotetu village and destroyed crops. He wants ranchers to be licenced by government and forced to fence their farms and to compensate local people for any damage caused by wildlife.
