Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta has pledged his country will cover more of its land with trees in a bid to fight climate change. Even though Africa makes a mere 4 per cent of the world’s greenhouse gasses it is estimated that 65 per cent of Africans will suffer from climate change. Kenyatta believes it’s time for action. President Kenyatta was speaking at the One Planet Summit in Nairobi.
