Tsavo East National Park is on fire again. This is the fourth inferno barely a week after another inferno razed down Tsavo West National Park.
This is the fifth fire in three months.

Tsavo conservation area assistant director Robert Njue said officials are mobilising resources to put out the fire that originated in Taita village area in Voi.
“We will start the investigation once we put out the fire. For now, we are mobilising to immediately start putting out the fire,” he said.
In the recent past, the fire has destroyed over a thousand acres of vegetation in the Tsavo.
The biggest effect wildfire has on wildlife habitat is by altering the three things animals need most: food, water, and shelter.
Cabinet Secretary for Tourism and Wildlife Management should inform the public if these infernos are part of what is termed as PRESCRIBED FIRE.
Is it possible that Kenyan Parks are under the watch of business cartels and retired politicians who are using former firefighters to gain from wildfires? Or this are political attacks on our Parks?
Here is how Kenyans on Twitter reacted,

This is not normal the government should investigate who is starting these fires. Its probably poachers are involved in these fires ? and they somehow benefit soo much till 3 fires in 2 months

I like your thinking but our government is so naive to look at it from a geopolitical angle. Remember when everything in KE was being bombed to the extent international organisations started moving offices to TZ?

Fire breaks out in Tsavo East National Park again; this is the fourth fire to ravage the park in two months. Are poachers or people out to sabotage our tourism industry responsible for this arson?#ChinaHorrorSinema #MuigaiTURNINGtide #EpukaMsotoJilipe #SaveKenyanDonkeys pic.twitter.com/uJqxUeu2Fc
