KWS Refutes Claims Of Road Being Built Within Nairobi National Park

Kenya Wildlife Services (KWS) has rubbished claims that a road is being constructed within the Nairobi National Park, destroying the animals’ natural habitat.

Kenyans online were irked by a picture doing rounds on social media which showed constructions works were underway at the park.

In a statement, KWS noted that the claims were “not true, and a total misrepresentation of the facts.”

“KWS has recently noted reports appearing in social media platforms insinuating that there is a new express way road being built next to the SGR passing through Nairobi National Park.

According to the state corporation, “The correct position is that a local contractor engaged by KWS is improving the road joining KWS Headquarters to Central Workshop inside the Park.”
