Mr John regretted that deforestation activities continue unabated as people cut down available trees without making any effort to replace them.
He said, “water is vital for man and animal survival and government should therefore embark on aggressive afforestation programme as well as enforce available laws to protect the environment considering the fact that water level is getting lower due to activities of man”.
