1. Cherangany Hills.
Located in the north Rift. It is really a crucial part of the Lake Turkana Eco-system alongside being a main water catchment area for the North Rift.
Not so far from Cherangany Hills is Mount Elgon Water Tower. This includes the Mount Elgon Forest which as of now is critically in danger owing to excisions, encroachment and land use changes and illegal logging. A closer look at this. Shall we?
Nairobi people. Naivasha People. Nyahururu People listen carefully... Listen very carefully. If the damage in the Aberdares is not arrested, you in for further issues. How? I will share with you
1. River Malewa that drains into Lake Naivasha.
2. River Ewaso Ngiro that ends up in the Lorian Swamp somewhere in eastern Kenya.
3. Rivers Tana and Athi that make sojourns to the plains before emptying at the Indian Ocean
This is by far the most interesting Water Tower of all the four because it supports lives of over 7 counties both upstream and downstream. How? I will let you know in a bit.
The most volatile. The most politicized. The most talked about. And currently the most degraded. From the pictures I have seen, we will be lucky to save the Largest Water Tower in Kenya.
