Over 200 charged with dumping, stepping on 'Kidero grass'

18 August 2015, 18:04 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Over 200 people have been charged with illegally dumping in the city of Nairobi and stepping on grass planted in designated areas, the Nairobi County government has announced.

Governor Evans Kidero said Tuesday that the over 200 had been charged and fined in the County courts over the offences.

He said that his squad, put up to ensure that offenders of dumping and other similar offences would be punished without fear or favour has so far done an excellent job.

" The exercise is ongoing and will continue until Nairobi is clean and all elements of dumping and littering are removed," he said.

The squad of 40, will be expanded to close to 100 to deal with the menace.

" Nairobians must be wary and know that the city does not clean itself. It must be the prerogative of the people to ensure the city is clean and anyone doing the opposite must be put to task," he added.

Kidero says that the County government uses as much as KES 40 million each month to clean the city, something he says is unacceptable and must be dealt with.
