Mombasa County’s ministry of environment has been asked to ensure regular collection of the garbage being heaped along the roads.

The most affected are the roads into and out of Muoroto slums in Mvita constituency since the county youth town cleaning project started.

Kaa Chonjo administrator Aisha Mwabote this morning, 25th May, warned about the mounting danger of disease outbreaks if the garbage was not collected soon.

The residents claimed that in the past three weeks ago, county trucks had not been collecting the garbage.

“We are grateful for the cleaning project. The young people have done an amazing job, but the garbage heaps along the roads are a great source of concern to us,” said the Kaa Chonjo area administrator.

Mvita constituency has recorded high numbers of Covid-19 cases in Mombasa County, but there is now also the risk of a cholera outbreak, the residents have warned.

Mwabote said that children were playing at the garbage, risking Covid-19 and other infections.

Early last month, President Uhuru Kenyatta announced the rollout of the county cleaning project for youth across the nation.

The project is aimed at mitigating the Covid-19 pandemic consequences for the young people.

Mombasa County aims to recruit 6,000 youths to benefit from the project to clean up towns and fight Covid-19.
