Kenya is Water Wealthy!
so why the shortage?
The Mount Kenya Ewaso Water Partnership (MKEWP) is continuing to lead efforts that will prove to the world that if stakeholders come together for the common use and management of water resources we will have enough water for all of us.
“Mt. Kenya is a crucial water tower that supplies water to the over 9 million residents surrounding Mt Kenya and a large part of Northern Kenya. Nothing significant can happen unless people start talking to each other in order to come up with sustainable solutions for water resource sharing, use and management,” said Stanley Kirimi, MKEWP’s Coordinator.

The target is to increase water productivity by 20% for 20,000 SME farmers in 5 counties in Kenya (Laikipia, Nakuru, Uasin Gishu, Marchakos, and Meru) towardsecured water access for production and resilience to climate change. This means assistance to 4000 small and medium scale farmers in Laikipia.

We Are Wild About Wild Dogs, says Dedan Ngatia
(researcher with the Mpala Research Centre)
Ask most Kenyans if they have seen a Wild Dog roaming free in it’s natural habitat and the answer would most likely be a sound no! An increasing population and destruction of ecosystems has seen a sharp decline of one of Kenya’s most Endangered species.
Wild dogs at Mpala Research Centre
Listed on the IUCN Red List of Endangered Species, populations of the African Wild Dog are currently estimated at approximately 6,600 adults, of which only 1,400 are mature individuals. Wild dogs were historically distributed across most of sub-Saharan Africa, but now inhabit only 7% of their former range as a result of habitat fragmentation, conflict with human activities, and infectious disease.

RwandAir: London Is Next


(Posted 18th May 2017)




RwandAir, Rwanda’s national airline, is now just days away from launching their first ever European destination. London Gatwick is next on the fast expanding airline’s horizon, after in early April already launching Mumbai / India, the first time RwandAir began flights on an intercontinental route.
The aircraft to be used is an Airbus A330, configured in a three class layout of Business Class, Premium Economy and Economy.

The state of the art business class layout with full flatbed seats is complemented with a groundbreaking first for Africa, a separate cabin for the carrier’s premium economy, offering just 7 seats abreast with a wide recline and footrests, enhanced catering and other improved amenities.
Three flights a week will be on offer when the route is launched next week, all of them offering convenient connections into the wider RwandAir network both inbound and outbound, especially from across the airline’s East Africa destinations which are served multiple times every day.
Find the RwandAir launch offers shown below, giving exceptional value for travelers destined to London directly but also those who then book onward flights to the continent or beyond out of London Gatwick.

The best deals on offer are out of Nairobi from US Dollars 504 and even better from Dar es Salaam, from where fares start as low as US Dollars 499 while the Entebbe – Kigali – London route has been pegged at US Dollars 599, giving some indication which markets RwandAir will target with intense marketing campaigns backed up by low fares, though without compromising their service on the ground and in the air.
London will be RwandAir’s 22nd destination in Africa, the Gulf, India and from next week on Europe.
