Business owners in Uthiru have requested the county government of Kiambu, to clear an illegal dump site right in the middle of the small town. “The dump site is a health hazard” Said Mukiri who is a resident of Uthiru.
Some traders said the solid waste is sometimes collected by the county government workers, but they want a proper waste management system set up.
The situation is made worse considering some of the waste comes from shops and bars from the Nairobi County side of Uthiru.
Rachel who owns a shop in the Kiambu side of the town said “the waste is mostly dumped during the night from both sides of the town.
Muchene who is a resident of uthiru said, there is no excuse in this day and age, why we shouldn’t walk in clean roads.
