LOST WETLAND GLORY GRADUALLY RETURNING

Initially lost wetland glory is gradually returning as a result of wetland restoration programmes – hence headlots of papyrus reeds for fuel are ferried from the restoring part of the Nyamuriro wetland. Women who had resorted to using couch grass rhizhomes as cooking fuel can now access the papyrus reeds easily and quickily (fig 2 below). Furthermore, water collection points that had gone without water for larger part of 2007 are reportedly gradually filling with water while muddy waters flooding the Nyamuriro wetland are no more as a result of water and soil conservation mechanisms code named “fanya juu – fanya chini” initiated on hill sides.
