Kenya Wildlife Service to create new research laboratory

Research and investigation at the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) is set to be improved in the coming years after the organisation announced it will be creating a new laboratory. The firm will be spending around Sh110 million to assist in forensic investigations involving wildlife, with Sh60 million of it coming from various development partners. According to AllAfrica.com, it is hoped that the facility will be open for use by the end of the year, providing a boost to the sector. KWS director Julius Kipng'etich is quoted by the news provider as saying that there will be a wide range of benefits to having the facility available. "And so we are moving towards empowering Kenya and East and Central Africa in general in having a facility that can support forensics and DNA analysis," he explained. Meanwhile, Rift Valley Railways are set to improve Kenya railways in the coming years to provide a boost to transport infrastructure.
