Mueke leads Nairobi cleanup

02 September 2013, 11:22 Robert Etakwa

Nairobi - Deputy governor Jonathan Mueke has urged Nairobi residents on Saturday to maintain cleanliness to attract investors in the city.

Speaking during the monthly clean up session in Makadara, Mueke said that attracting investors will create employment to the youth and lower the level of insecurity and crime in the city.

Mueke said that cleaning sessions will help Nairobi residents to shun hard political lines and unite them in a common goal of development in the County.

On the same account, County officer Makadara District, Margret Mbugua called on the youth to volunteer in the cleaning up session to support Agenda for change Makadara Combination Youth Group (ACMCYG) which compliment the governor’s initiative.

The ACMCYG trains youth on different department such as education, environment and health sector to empower the youth with knowledge to fight unemployment crisis.

Speaking to sensitize youths and parents on the new campaign dubbed ‘MLIKA CHANG’AA OKOA MTOTO’ Mbugua said that parents should take responsibility of their children to avoid getting arrested whose penalty is KES 100 000.

She further said cleanliness will see Kaloleni, Jericho, Buruburu, and Makongeni avoid diseases associated with garbage and poor drainage systems such as cholera and diarrhea.  

National Environmental Management Authority County Officer, William Ouko also called on the government to hire more NEMA officers to train Nairobi residents how to manage their litter in their residential apartments and in the streets of the city.

“Nairobi County lacks enough NEMA officers to enforce the Nairobi City County by-laws on environment,” said Ouko.

He urged Kenyans to be responsible of their waste and buy dust bins to control waste management in their home premises.
