The Word Forest Organisation started this petition to President Uhuru Kenyatta

The Word Forest Organisation has created this petition on behalf of Joannah Stutchbury's friend Bena, who writes to President Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya:

"I am deeply disturbed by the violent and senseless murder of my friend, Joannah Stutchbury, a lone, defenceless 64-year-old woman, who was gunned down by criminals, solely because of her determination to fight to save her beloved Kiambu forest in Kenya.

Although we never met in person, Joannah and I have been friends on the internet since discovering that not only do we share the same unusual surname, but we both love nature.

In tirelessly campaigning, Joannah was only trying to prevent her beloved forest from being sacrificed in the name of profit. As you are also a horticulturist, I know you understand how the balance of nature is paramount for a healthy environment and thus the health of your nation.

Please would you consider conserving a small area of Kiambu Forest that Joannah loved so much. You have the power to make it a national conservation area in her name. This would allow her vibrant spirit to live on as a legacy and would send a loud and clear message internationally that you also wish to conserve Kenya’s beautiful yet endangered natural heritage.

It might also bring a small measure of healing to her friends and family who are mourning a senseless loss of a wonderful life."

Please help us create a legacy for Joannah Stutchbury, an amazing environmentalist and conservationist, by signing and sharing this petition on your social media platforms and blogs.

Asante sana - thank you.
