Nairobi residents at Cholera risks

07 June 2012, 16:03 Fridah Mutune

Cholera is an intestinal bacterial infection caused by a germ knowns Vibrio cholerae. Although a few cases in Kenya are reported each year,a major pandemic is lingering following the three weeks water crisis in Nairobi city due to water rationing by the only Nairobi water company in the slums areas of Mathare,Mukuru kwa njenga and Kibera.

The causative agent is spread through consumption of infected food or water either naturally or through contaminated faeces. Foods like shellfish,fruits and vegetables can also harbour the germ.

Moreover,the largest population in Nairobi harbour the slum area that have been mostly hit by the current water shortage.this factor has pushed most of these residents to get water for domestic usage even from open untreated sewers. In such a situation,the contact between the contact between untreated stool increase the chances of cholera infection among the slum dwellers.

 In addition,the crowded living conditions are also instrumental in spread of cholera if one happen to get infected since infected power is almost the umbrella to the cause of cholera since infected surrounding offer a little chance of culling the victims.

However,the question is who is not playing their major part? And are those concerned with water provision going to sit and watch as people get sucked into the bottomless pit of cholera.
