Led by Kitui County Assembly Speaker Kevin Kinengo Katisya, the MCAs affirmed their support to the CS and promised to work closely with her to bring an end to human-wildlife conflicts that have been witnessed in different parts of Kitui County.

The aim of the meeting was to explore areas of mutual interest between Kitui County Government and the National Government. These areas include acceleration of compensation of victims of human-wildlife conflict and the use of preventive measures like fencing of game parks and reserves within the expansive county.

CS Malonza urged Kitui County Government to create enabling environment for investors in the tourism sector.

"I am committed to working with County Assemblies in areas of legislation necessary to stimulate tourism, wildlife and cultural sectors in line with the government's bottom -up economic agenda" said Tourism, Wildlife and Heritage CS Peninah Malonza.

In July 2021, 382 domestic animals were devoured by wildlife in Kitui County as drought worsened.

Herds of lion, leopard, hyenas and monkeys 
were reported by Kitui County Steering Group on Food Security as having killed goats, donkeys and cattle when they escaped from their habitats in the county.

The report was released by National Drought Management Authority Coordinator in Kitui County Francis Koma.

Kitui County has Kora National Reserve and South Kitui National Reserve as some of the parks the wildlife live in for tourist attraction and are a source of employment to many.
