SAVING OUR MANGROVES

Coastweek -- MARINE Biologists,  conservation and environmental experts have called on the Governments of Kenya and Tanzania to continue pro-tecting ‘Wetland Areas’.

Following a ‘Mangrove, Shrimp  and Aquaculture Workshop’ organised by the East and Wildlife Society and hosted at the Reef Hotel, the scientists issued an important new conservation document to be called ‘The Mombasa Declaration.’

Salient points include:

Governments conserve and protect wetland  areas - in particular mangrove forests, rivers, lagoons, inlets, bays, estuaries, swamps, marshes and tidelands through a joint management system with local communities.

Governments ensure that the development and operation of aquaculture, in particular shrimp aquaculture, does not adversely affect biotic and abiotic environments and artisanal fisheries and the communities which depend on them.

Governments enhance efforts to integrate coastal zone management plans and promulgate appropriate environmental laws.

Governments encourage sustainable natural and/ or traditional Shrimp Aquaculture, which includes an emphasis on the carrying capacity of the environment as well as the real and effective participation of all groups that benefit from coastal resources, particularly the local communities.

East African Wildlife Society, together with local, regional and international Non-Governmental Organisations, establish an ‘Alert Network System’ to monitor destruction of coastal habitats, especially caused through industrial shrimp aquaculture. 

HON. SHARIFF NASSIR, M.P. for Mombasa Central, has been appointed Minister of Home Affairs, National Heritage, Culture and Social Services.

Welcoming the announcement from State House, Nairobi, was KANU Mvita sub-branch organising secretary Abdulrahman Sheriff who said:

“This appointment is a clear indication that President Moi rewards dedicated leaders like Shariff Nassir, who for the past 24 years as Mvita M.P. has delivered the required services to wanainchi.’
