Environment and Forestry CS Keriako Tobiko has extended the imposed moratorium on logging in public and community forests for 12 months.
In a press statement sent to newsrooms Thursday, the CS said a multi-agency team will be constituted to undertake an independent mapping, verification and valuation of all mature and over mature forest plantations.
“This team will submit its report to the government within four months,” said Tobiko.
The suspension on logging was supposed to end on 24th November this year.
