Mr Matker decried the massive deforestation in Lafey and Mandera West sub-counties adding that the department has embarked on afforestation program in Mandera, Rhamu, and Takaba, Elwak, Banisa and Lafey towns. "The department is carrying out sensitization campaign on importance of protecting our environment. “I appeal to the residents to stop the massive deforestation we are witnessing as it degrades the environment, “said Mr. Matker.
