Agevi Kinship

“It takes strong leaders working together to solve the world’s toughest environmental challenges”. This is the motivational call by the Kinship Conservation Fellowship, in which MMUST has young and very active participants led by Mr Humphrey Agevi and Ms Faith Muniale, who are Environmentalists in the Department of Biological Sciences. Recently from 15th – 20th July 2018, the two were among participants of the Second 2018 Kinship Regional Conservation Workshop at Maasai Lodge in Nairobi. 

The Kinship Conservation Fellowship promotes innovative, market-based solutions, and seeks to produce fellows who could have positive and lasting conservation impacts. The workshop attracted participants from Kenyan universities, Community Based Organisations, Conservancies and County Governments. Others came from East and Central African countries like Rwanda, Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo and Ethiopia. 

Mr Agevi feels that the current environmental challenges that Kenya tries to address would not have been there if proper policies were developed and enforced. “Settling people in the Mau Forest Complex, our very important natural water tower of regional importance, was a very big mistake in the first place, the government should fully implement the resettlement of those people in a more humane way without political intereference” says Agevi. He also raised concerns on conservation of endangered species that face extinction, while focusing on the unfortunate death of ‘Sudan’, the world’s last male Northern White rhino at Ol Pajeta Conservancy in Laikipia, and the recent deaths of eight black rhinos following their relocation to Tsavo East National Park.
