NEMA urges counties to manage noise and waste
By Robert Kiplagat | June 9th 2015
The National Environment Management Authority (Nema) has called on county governments to implement the control of noise pollution and waste management, which have since been devolved.
Nema Director General Geoffrey Wahungu and board chairman Maluki Mwendwa said the authority would soon open offices in all counties for efficiency.
The officials, who spoke in Narok, said Parliament should provide for the establishment of an appropriate legal and institutional framework to manage the environment through enactment of the reviewed Environmental Management Act.
Industries affected by environmental degradation have complained about the high siltation rate in Lake Magadi caused by recent flooding in tributaries such as Enkare-Narok, which led to flash floods in Narok town.
