Kenya Pipeline is counting losses after millions of litres of paraffin were spilled when a pipeline broke at Manyani area in Taita Taveta.
Witnesses said the line which supplies paraffin to Nairobi from Mombasa broke at Manyani inside Tsavo.
The cause of the breakage was not immediately established since Kenya Pipeline officials refused to speak to the press.
Taita Taveta OCPD Samson Kinne said the incident occured on Saturday evening.
He said there is no cause for alarm since no one can stray into the park to siphon the paraffin as has been the norm whenever oil spills.
However, KWS authorities expressed concern over environmental pollution in the park following the spillage fearing it could harm the wildlife.
"The spillage is a very risky thing especially inside the park since it can result in fires which can decimate our wildlife," said KWS assistant director Tsavo conservation area, Mr Wilson Korir.
He said wildlife could also be affected if they consumed grass contaminated by the spillage.
Korir said Kenya Pipeline engineers are working tirelessly to contain the situation.
