The Kenyan government has declared a public holiday to encourage residents to plant 100 million trees across the country. President William Ruto has pledged to plant 15 billion trees by 2032 to increase Kenya’s forest cover. Despite torrential rain, hundreds of people gathered in Nairobi to plant trees. While Ruto has been criticized by environmental groups for lifting a five-year ban on logging, a court has suspended the decision but authorized the felling of 5,000 hectares of mature trees.
