Nyandarua County Council has moved to clean up a market at Kasuku trading centre in a bid to stop a case against it going for full trial. Nyandarua West district public health officer Ezekiel Moenga has sued the county clerk Joel Muli after the council failed to exhaust filled-up toilets and provide a dumping site for traders.
He had given the council a 30-day notice which expired last month. The market has no running water. The situation in the town gets worse when it rains because there is no drainage for storm water.
The council started collecting piles of garbage at the trading centre and exhausting the filled-up toilets at the market yesterday. The court gave the clerk a week to act or be summoned to court for a hearing of the case. The clerk was ordered to improve the market to "acceptable condition".
