Jim Justus Nyamu on route to Mt Elgon from Nairobi

It takes determination to see a dream come to pass. The question is not will you start, but will you finish, I am on my 16th day since I started this Great North Rift Elephant campaign walk from Nairobi . I have walked 329km to date in 4 counties and I feel that People with a strong will power will always have the bigger picture in mind. They will be able to forgo small pleasures in order to help attain bigger goals.

This walk is very unique from any other recent walk I have undertaken , we have received overwhelming good will support from the National Government , all the county commissioners of 11 counties have been notified and so far 4 counties have expressed their support wholesomely ;I was thrilled by the County of Bomet , during my 5 days in your county I have learnt so much from your leadership and thank you very much organising and coordinating my activities in your region unlike other counties that were so quiet and unreachable .

I have learnt that a man can be as great as he wants to be. If you believe in yourself and have the courage, the determination, the dedication, the competitive drive and if you are willing to sacrifice the little things in life and pay the price for the things that are worthwhile, it can be done; this has been backed by support from Kenya Wildlife Service , Kenya Forest Service among other organisations , who have walked with me for the last 16 days .

I have noted some gaps in executing environmental concerns in most of our counties, this selfless grass-root campaign walk comes to remind us of our responsibilities and making a public clarion call in waking up to the reality #ClimateAction. There is a growing trend of having car wash next to the river and others washing them inside the river, I do understand that Public Health department and NEMA are responsible in the matters to do with health issues. However I do not understand why they are allowing communities to do this , I reckon they are looking for a daily bread but can they be guided ! I feel frustrated and perturbed ! You can’t wash the waste from your hands when it’s all gone and let us remember that caring for water is caring for us all.
