Cleaning of Mombasa town

20 May 2013, 14:12 Rodgers Buluma

Mombasa - The coastal town that was slowly turning into a dumping site was on Saturday scrubbed and left sparkling clean.

Joint efforts by Mombasa County Council and other stakeholders were employed in ensuring the town was rehabilitated.
This is after Mombasa County governor Ali Hassan Joho declared Saturday 18th May to be a "Keep Mombasa Clean" and "Green Day".

The declaration of the day by the governor came after many publications both in daily papers and the internet by writers from Mombasa condemned the state at which the tourist filled town was in.

The County Council has stipulated rules to tame careless littering of the streets in Mombasa by the residents.

Among the rules is that, anybody caught littering the town is to either pay a fine worth KES 5000, serve a jail term or do a community service.

Other measures to improve cleanliness in the town  include increasing the number of litter bins in the town, securing a smocking zone, doubling the efforts in transporting the collected garbage off the town among others.

It will be recalled that Mombasa town dwellers produce more than 80,000 tones of solid garbage every day of which much has been ending up on the streets of the town.
