Due to the heavy rains, the whole region had cooled down significantly and water collected everywhere, Consequently hippos could be seen roaming freely in the open in the daytime which is a rare sight in normal sunny conditions

I'm sure most of the People in Kenya are aware of the massive landslides that have been experienced in the West Pokot region. More than 50 people have died and many more still missing. Close to 100K people have been displaced and will need relocation.
The events of the last few days have been both tragic and unfortunate. My condolences to the families that have lost loved ones in the landslides and floods.
About six months ago, I went hiking in the mountainous region of West Pokot County, Kenya. It was one of the most toughest and challenging hikes that I'd ever done mostly because of the terrain. The region is certainly among the most beautiful and spectacular places in Kenya.
While exploring the area, I was shocked by the level of deforestation. What used to be Forest cover has been reduced to bare land as evident in the above images. Humans have established farms and homesteads in steep sloppy areas of the mountains, some nearly vertical. If you can see the white spots, those are homes and storage facilities with the large brown areas being the farms.
According to the locals, there is limited land for agriculture and for settlement. It is shocking to note that more than fifty percent of the County's population live precariously like this. Unless something drastic is done to address the issue, people's lives will continue to be at risk more so from landslides, mudslides, flash floods, rock falls, creeps and other forms of land mass movements. Of most importance is Education on the importance of Forests. The other being the dangers of farming and living on steep slopes.

When everything feels like an uphill struggle, just think of the view from the top. Keep pushing and aim for the top. It might seem tough but remember, "winners never quit and quiters never win"~ Vince Lombardi.
