KWS chairman flags off new fleet of vehicles and motorbikes

Kenya Wildlife Service Board of Trustees chairman Hon David Mwiraria

Kenya Wildlife Service Board of Trustees chairman Hon David Mwiraria on Friday December 9 , 2011  flagged off 10 new vehicles and 20 motorcycles worth Sh33 million for conservation work across the country.

Speaking at the function at KWS headquarters, Hon Mwiraria said the KWS board was keen on ensuring that the organisation led in using serviceable vehicles.

The vehicles worth Sh28 million will replace those that have been used for at least five years or have covered 180,000 kilometres, whichever comes first. This is in line with the KWS fleet management policy.

The 20 motorbikes costing Sh5 million are meant to reduce reliance on heavy duty vehicles in the field as one way of cutting costs of operation. They are also better at moving in rough terrain.  He reiterated that improving staff efficiency buy equipping them with the right tools was key in the overall performance of the organisation.

KWS is in the process of buying a fleet management system which will indicate when vehicles are due for service and replacement. The system will also monitor all vehicles for cause of accidents, speeding, and where packed or driven. Through a process called geo-fencing, the system will also monitor vehicles when they stray from areas of assignment.
