The Land’s Cabinet Secretary who was recently elected the Chief scout, on Wednesday made a familiarization tour of the expansive scouts movement headquarters at Jamuhuri Park in Nairobi. During his tour, Prof. Kaimenyi mingled and interacted with various visiting groups among them school parties. The new Chief scout pledged to work with all stakeholders in the scout movement to make it serve the country better. The Land’s CS said he would ensure that the Kenya Scouts Association (KSA) secured title deeds for its parcels of land in Nyeri, Mombasa, Embu and Bungoma among other places.
Prof. Kaimenyi is the fourth Chief Scout to be elected in Kenya. The others are retired President Daniel Arap Moi, the late Cabinet Minister Jeremiah Nyagah and former House Speaker Francis Ole Kaparo. Prof. Kaimenyi said Kenya occupies a unique role in the growth of the scouting movement in the world for being the home of the founder of the Scouting Movement Baden Powell, whose remains are interred in Nyeri. Kenya also hosts both the continental and regional scouts headquarters at Rowallan Camp.
