Eldas Member of Parliament Adan Keynan Wehliye has urged residents of the area to come out in large numbers and join him this weekend for a tree planting session.
The MP took to his social media account to invite anyone interested in being there.
‘’As the journey to build Eldas continues, I would like to bring to the attention of the public that on the Saturday 18th November 2017 at 10:00AM, I will be hosting a tree planting session in Eldas constituency. The exercise will begin at Eldas town then proceed to different parts of the constituency” posted the outspoken Jubilee MP.
An estimated 7000 (Seven Thousand) trees will be planted in the green-ification and afforestation initiative by The Adan Keynan Foundation which is running into its Seventh year now.’
“Trees are a vital resource we can’t do without. They give us oxygen, store carbon, stabilize the soil and give life to the world’s wildlife. They also provide us with the materials for tools and shelter, food and a host of other products in between. Their aesthetic appeal is universal and they make our world a much more beautiful place to live in” summed Keynan.
Trees play an important role in environmental protection and increasing the forest cover of the vast constituency won’t have come at a better time than this rainy season.
The exercise will be graced by The Cabinet Secretary for Natural Resources, Ministry officials, KEFRI officials, Kenya Forest Services officials, The county leadership led by the Governor Amb. Mohamed Abdi Mohamud, County MCA’s and the host MP Mr. Keynan.
