Nakuru town area Mp Lee Kinyanjui on Wednesday said the sale of scrap metal was to blame for the vandalization of the public facilities and that parliament should come up with the a law to ban the sale of scrap metals in the country.
Speaking on while opening a bypass bridge along the busy Nakuru-Eldoret road that was damaged by over loaded truck last year, Kinyanjui ,said members of the public should also assist the authorities in curbing theft of steel rails that are normally vandalized by criminals.
“It is cause of concern that those who are behind the activity are selfish individuals who do not mind about the welfare of the town” he said.
The Roads Assistant Minister observed that public land grabbing has been done with impunity in the town and that there was limited space left for any public activity in the town.
Most of the public land has been grabbed by few individuals who only want to benefit alone and that’s why Kinyanjui said he was starting a campaign of recovering all grabbed pieces of land in Nakuru.
