It has been more than six weeks since the fence con­struc­tion at Konza stopped. The two open­ings remain on the south­ern and east­ern cor­ners. For sev­eral weeks while KWS, ACK, the Athi-Kapiti Cheetah project and neigh­bor­ing ranches eval­u­ated the sit­u­a­tion, water was pro­vided through dona­tions to the Friends of the Nairobi National Park (FoNNaP). Michael Mbithi headed the water­ing efforts until the gov­ern­ment paper­work could be filed to allo­cate the nec­es­sary funding.
