FAQ's
What is the status of Mt. Kenya Fence Project?

Construction of the Mt. Kenya Electric Fence started in July 2012. Once completed, it will be approximately 450 kilometres long encircling over 2,700 square kilometres of prime forests and critical water catchments. The Fence Project was officially launched on 7 September 2012 by Hon. Njeru Githae, Minister for Finance.

 

As of April 2016, 100 kilometres of the fence have been built, spanning the area from Kiringa River in Kirinyaga County to Mutongu River on the border of Meru County. Authorized access points along the fence line are protected by lockable metallic gates. One energizer house has been completed in Castle Forest Station and two more are being procured.

 

24 fence attendants have already been hired to carry out daily maintenance of the completed fence section, and improved supervision and reporting procedures have been put in place.
