Kenya: Nakuru West Residents Put Candidates to Task Over Trash

RESIDENTS of Nakuru West constituency want their next MP to deal urgently with the spiralling garbage problem once elected. They want the MP to find a permanent solution to floods that submerge their houses during heavy rains.

The residents were presenting their grievances during a parliamentary candidates public debate held in Nakuru town at the weekend. Mike Brawan, who is running on the UDF ticket said if elected, he will push for a law outlawing reckless disposal of garbage.

TNA's candidate Charles Maisiba said he will establish a recycling company that will not only deal with the garbage problem, but also give jobs to the unemployed youths. One of the biggest dump sites, Gioto, in Nakuru is in the constituency and has caused anguish to the London and Kiamunyi estate residents.
