Murang’a, Kenya: Three motorcyclists were Monday sentenced to a total of 15 months of community service for washing their bikes in the Mwea irrigation scheme canals.

Appearing before a Wanguru court, the three pleaded guilty to charges of polluting the Thiba and Mutithi canals by cleaning their bikes in the river.

Daniel Warui and Harrison Mwangi had been jointly charged that on October 23, within the Mwea Irrigation scheme, they were found washing their motorcycles inside the Thiba canal thereby causing pollution to the natural resourse.

Resident Magistrate Stephen Ngii while sentencing the two to serve six months community service each said the issue of environment pollution was a serious one.
