Deeply grateful to His Excellency The President Uhuru Kenyatta on bestowing me the honor of the “Order of the Grand Warrior ( O.G.W) of Kenya”.I truly thank the President and his administration for the faith he has shown in me and the entire wildlife conservation fraternity. The award challenges me and fellow conservationists to accelerate the efforts to protect wildlife and jealously guard their habitation . The award means a lot to me at a personal level and provides a much needed impetus and springboard of inspiration to ramp up anti-poaching campaigns .I am truly indebted to Her Excellency First Lady Hon. Margaret Kenyatta for the immense support to realize the campaigns .I am also grateful to the dedicated teams at the ministries of Tourism and Wildlife, Interior , Embassies, County Governments and Corporates who have selflessly supported the Ivory Belongs to Elephant campaign walks since 2013.
As I strive to set standards and examples worth emulating,I dedicate the award to family and many gallant conservation heroes who have laid down their lives and careers to conserve the iconic species.
