Owners of quarries to be filling up exhausted quarries

30 October 2014, 19:21 Wilshere

Nakuru - Nakuru County Assembly has adopted a motion that will compel the owners of quarries in the county to be fencing and filling up the exhausted quarries.

While moving the motion at the floor of the house, Gilgil ward representative Jane Wangui said that some of the exhausted quarries had become hideouts for thugs who terrorize members of the public.

Wangui added that sad harvesters in the county have been leaving the quarries without filling them a thing which she said has become a threat to local residents.

“This motion will compel all the owners of the quarries in the county to filling them up after harvesting sand because some of the holes have become a threat to the communities in those areas,” she said yesterday during a siting.

Wangui told the house to adopt the motion since the public must be protected from the open quarries which now pauses a threat.

Members of the assembly supported the motion saying that it was timely since innocent lives have been lost when the quarries collapses.

The house urged the county government to adopt the motion and implement it since the exhausted quarries had become an eyesore to members of the public.

The motion was passed without being opposed by any of the MCA.
