“River Auji is not a sewer line, so we are appealing to Manyatta B tenants and landlords to practice proper waste management. To achieve this, we had to launch our office to give us room for engaging the community. Some people went ahead and release raw sewer into this river,” Owino added.

Paul mark from Mamboleo Social Justice Center added that they felt it was good to have a branch of Social Justice Movement within Manyatta to enable the people to speak out when offended.

“Today we are doing a ground breaking of thus social justice movement so that we can chat a way forward with our community. With this we will give room to the community to speak out as we are targeting both the youth, elderly, and children group to come on board. We have included the children because their rights have been infringed so much,” added Paul.
