Is it a case of ‘stinking city’ in the sun?

Nothing has changed since Executive Committee Member for Environment, Water and Sanitation, Eng Peter Kimori who took over at City Hall more than a month ago, in as far as garbage collection is concerned.

A spot check by Nairobi News on Friday revealed that most alleys within the CBD, which are supposed to be used by pedestrians, have been turned into dumping sights.

Heaps upon heaps of garbage have piled on many of these streets including Safi lane, Price road, Sheik Karume lane and Mfangano lane.


The continued dumping of waste has affected businesses in the surrounding areas. The business people are now calling for action from Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero.

During his swearing-in, Eng Kimori made a commitment to tackle the issue of waste management but so far he is yet to actualize his promise.

“I want to utilize the experience previously acquired both in the public and private sector to provide solutions on solid waste, water and energy,” Eng Maranga said at the time.

In January City Hall entered into a partnership with the National Youth Service (NYS) following a public outcry of uncollected garbage.
