KWS Struggles to Improve its Historical Site

The Kenya Wildlife Services officially opened a grand operation where it intends to use all they have got to improve their tourism sector through marketing their unexploited historical sites. Muraya Githinji who is the KWS tourism officer mentioned that the country has got so many historical sites which have not been marketed thus the need to explore them.
While people at the Man Eaters Caves in Tsavo West National Park, Githinji mentioned that they should be able to attract a lot of tourists to explore all the attraction opportunities available during the peak season of the industry rather than depending on gate fees collected at the park entrances, they should visit those rich historical sites like World War 1 sites, Shetani lava in Tsavo East and the Man-eaters in Tsavo West among so many other places.
The skeletons of the two lions were taken to one in museum Chicago after they were killed. Currently, the Kenya government through its National Museums and Heritage Department is trying to make sure that all remains of the man eaters are brought back in the country and at the same time, the Wildlife conservationists have encouraged the government to ensure they bring back all those skeletons of the man eaters as they should be in the Kenyan Museum.
The Man Eaters Caves are found at the Tsavo Bridge along the Nairobi-Mombasa highway and are essential part in Kenya’s colonial history. These two lions killed had become a problem to the locals and Indian railway workers who were constructing the Kenyan Uganda railway line in 1898 and here it had more than 135 construction workers thus the name Man Eaters.
