CENTRAL | By Boniface Gikandi | October 7th 2021
A public cemetery at Gikonou in Makuyu, Murang’a County, has been turned into a dumping site.
For three weeks now, trucks thought to be from Nairobi and Thika have been seen after 10pm offloading garbage at the site, which is barely half a kilometre from the proposed World Bank-funded Sh1 billion Mitumbiri sanitary landfill.
James Mwangi, a resident, said the main suspects were hoteliers and healthcare providers. Murang’a County Environment and Natural Resources Executive Cecilia Kibe blamed ‘naughty’ garbage collection firms for the mess.
