More trouble for Kahumbu as KWS claim property from 17 years ago

The Kenya Wildlife Service has hit back at conservationist Dr Paula Kahumbu with a blast from the past.


According to reports, the Wildlife Service has given WildlifeDirect CEO Dr Paula Kahumbu 21 days to surrender the property she was supposed to surrender 17 years ago during clearance as she left the organisation.


In a letter dated 18 February 2020, Kahumbu is required to surrender the service properties and also settle all the outstanding liabilities.


According to KWS, the conservationist was required to return a camping light, Hirola Task Book, Environmental Management in Kenya Book, Olympus Digital Camera S.No. 50137244 and Staff ID Card worth Sh500.
She was also told to pay for a telephone bill for her former institutional house worth Sh23,754.20, un-surrendered imprest of Sh124,000 and one month’s salary in lieu of notice of Sh230,000.
“You were reminded of this situation way back vide letter ref: KWS/5905 dated 1st April 2004, (copy attached) which was not responded to and the service hasn’t heard from you on the matter since then to date,” said Brig. (Rtd) J. M. Waweru, KWS Director-General.


This comes after Dr Kahumbu claimed on Wednesday that KWS had banned her from Kenya’s national parks, a claim they have since denied.


However, Kenya Wildlife Services (KWS) Head of Communications Paul Udoto said he was unaware of such a ban on Dr Kahumbu.


Dr Kahumbu who was recently at the forefront of a campaign against hosting of Koroga Festival at Hell’s Gate National Park in Naivasha had sued to stop KWS and organisers of the festival but lost the case and it was eventually held at the park last weekend.
