The forestry ministry has enforced precautionary measures during the high season of veld fires, including the prohibition charcoal burners scattered on a farm. The New Era newspaper reports the ministry suggested there should be, with an immediate effect, clustered burners systems applied on each farm to reduce veld fire outbreak. The system should apply from the beginning of August to the end of December annually. According to director for forestry, Joseph Hailwa, causes of veld fires include charcoal burning and motorists; thus, charcoal production should be done under strict measures. These measures include that one should cluster all kilns at a designated facility or central burning places per camp of charcoal production on a farm.
