Just picked this up from Facebook and indeed news on YouTube claims that the Forestry Commission is now trying to fight it,
"From Susie Weeks of Mt Kenya Wildlife Trust - Only KWS and a few community groups are trying to fight the fires on Mount Kenya which this time have spread into the forest on the Naro Moru side of the mountain. As they rage and KWS fight them with no budget to do so there is no action from anyone higher up. Mount Kenya Trust Trustees have appealed to the Office of the President, and the Provincial Commissioner and the press. This is one of our most important water towers and it cannot be KWS's responsibility alone to fight something so big and out of control. There's noting in the newspapers. It is an outrage!!!"
Let's hope it's not too damaging.
