The member requested for action to be taken immediately .

The allegations were made during the quarterly Osenetoi Welfare Group meeting held today at Oloolua.

The two leaders discussed the allegations with the property owner who is accused of dumping the liquid waste. The man confirmed there is an underground liquid waste disposal pipe connected from his property all the way to a drainage along Ngong Kiserian Road, a distance of approximately 100 mtrs.

The property owner in his defense claimed only laundry and bathroom water is dumped through the pipe.  Chief Mpesha gave the man 21 days to remove the pipes failure to which further action will be taken.  The Chief further promised to inform the public health officer in charge of Oloolua ward to officiate the 21 days notice.

Is the public health office doing enough to reduce or eliminate the dumping of liquid waste in your area?
