The Government has ordered 600 families who have encroached on the Maasai Mau forest to leave. Deputy President William Ruto, who spoke at the weekend at Sogoo High School in Narok South where part of the forest is located, asked the squatters to move out, saying environmental conservation was crucial for the country. The move is geared towards conserving the 46,000-hectare forest, which is the largest water tower in East and Central Africa.
