The five East African Countries have now committed themselves to ensure that the ecosystem around the Lake Victoria Basin is conserved so that it improves on the livelihoods of the locals living around it.
The Chairperson of the EAC Council of Ministers Judy Wakhungu said that the five states will collaborate together so as to ensure the lake is conserved properly.
Wakhungu said any negative effects in each of the countries impact heavily on the lake and affects locals living along the Lake Basin and that should be avoided in all circumstances.
We are the greatest beneficiary of this lake and we should by any standards protect it from those who deposit affluent in our beautiful Lake and so with this people living around will not be affected through any means
Speaking during the 13th sectoral meeting of ministers in Kisumu, Wakhungu who is also the Cabinet Secretary for Environment, Water and Natural Resources in the Kenyan Government said the five states must pull together to realize the desired results in the lake region.
Deputy Secretary General of the East African Community Jessica Eriyo said the Lake has a lot of potential that has not been fully exploited.
Eriyo said despite the vast opportunities that the Lake Basin has, it is still faced with a myriad of challenges ranging from population pressure, pollution to high poverty incidences amongst others.
She called upon the Lake Victoria Basin Commission to deal with the challenges and tap the potential in the region.
