KWS distance itself from electrocution incident at L.Nakuru National Park

Kenya Wildlife Service Central Rift Region has distanced itself from electrocution incident at Lake Nakuru National Park that led to death of 8 buffaloes.

Assistant Director KWS Central Rift Joseph Dadacha says it is not the mandate of KWS to asses the power limits at the park, but sole responsibility of the Kenya Power Company.

“Our mandate as KWS has nothing to do with electricity, but that lies with Kenya Power Company,” he said.

Despite KWS issuing a statement concerning the Tuesday incident indicating that that the heavy downpour was the cause of the incident, Dadacha says KWS is not to blame in any way for the unfortunate incident.

Though Kenya Power Company has rectified the fault that led to the incident, the KWS Officer has assured that the Lake Nakuru National Park is safe for human beings as well as wildlife.

He urged local and international tourists to make good use of the Park.
