12MMUST is determined and dedicated to achieve the Vision 2030 goals as an academic institution in the Country. By 2030, the country targets to achieve 10% forest cover in a move that will see more trees planted thus, increased green cover in the Country. The National Tree Planting day, 12th May, 2018, led by President Uhuru Kenyatta had a theme dubbed, “Panda Miti, Penda Kenya.”

Speaking on the National Tree Planting Day, MMUST VC Prof. Fredrick Otieno applauded the participants for showing concern to not only their Country but also to humanity at large. Prof. Otieno asked the members to continue with the tree planting activity at their households to facilitate the 10% tree cover target even before year 2030.

Alice Anyona, the Kenya Forest Services (KFS) Kakamega Sub County officer, thanked the members for availing themselves and reminded them of the great importance that came with protecting the trees. Mrs. Anyona attributed fresh air and rains to the presence of trees and thus urged participants not to solely depend on KFS to plant and protect trees; rather they should make it a personal effort to do so. According to her, adequate supply of water in the Country can be achieved through planting many trees and protecting the available ones. Furthermore, she noted that KFS has asked residents living around the forests to avoid destruction of trees in their reach and instead look after them.
