Tourism Cabinet Secretary Najib Balala led Kenya in marking World Elephant Day celebrations at Amboseli National on August 12.
This is an international event conducted on every 12th of August, devoted to the preservation and protection of elephants worldwide.
An 11-year-old male elephant was witnessed being darted and collared for monitoring purposes as the country continues to fight against poaching.
The baby elephant was named in honour of Kajiado governor Ole Lenku’s father who had proven his interest towards conservation.
CS Balala also said one of the twin elephant was adopted by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
“We are here celebrating World Elephant Day. It has been a long commitment,” said Balala.
KWS last year had said the poaching activities had greatly reduced following tough wildlife rules they had introduced.
