County askaris arrest 71 people for littering the city

17 August 2015, 21:35 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi – Barely a week after Nairobi Governor, Evans Kidero deployed more than 50 county askaris to maintain cleanliness in the city, the officers arrested and arraigned 71 offenders in court Monday morning.

Kidero said the offenders arraigned before the City Principal Magistrate were mostly arrested for illegally dumping solid wastes and littering the city, stepping on grass and flower beds in addition to using undesignated walkways thus contravening the county regulations issued last week.   

He said Nairobi City County Government (NCCG) is committed to restore the city’s sanity and beauty for it to continue leading in investment and holiday destination for tourists across the world.

“As communicated last week, the cost of restoring Nairobi is bearing heavily on the NCCG and we will do all within our powers to ensure sanity is brought back to this great city. Please avoid littering and dumping illegally. Ensure to only use designated pathways or else you will meet the same consequences,” insisted Kidero.

The offence notice issued last week by the County stated that Nairobians caught littering the city, stepping on flower beds, grass and breaking the County regulations such as spiting anyhow and blowing their nose without a handkerchief risk arrest and fine of at least KES 2 000.  

Kidero commended Nairobians for giving his enforcement officers ample time by complying with the regulations and warned that the askaris will not relent in arresting anyone refusing to comply with the laws.

He said the County has invested more than KES 40 million in the beautification program and would like to cut the maintenance costs.
