KWS Corporate Communications Officer Paul Udoto said they were not certain of the number of the lions. “The lions were part of the wild population and we are depending on the public to report if they sight them,” he said.
Mr Udoto said the KWS was aware that a lioness had cubbed on the border of Lang’ata Barracks and the park and was monitoring the situation. “However, this morning we were called at 4am and told that some two lionesses, we believe, including the new mother, had been seen on the road near Lang’ata Hospital.
We responded immediately. But we have not been able to track them down,” he explained. “We are still combing through this area,” Meanwhile, in an update, the said that one of the lions (pictured) has been caught in Kibera.
