‘‘Our  officers  are on the ground  to at least address the sanitation issues and also intermingle with the community leaders to enhance awareness.. but we want to tell  Majengo and Kamukunji residents in general that we can stop cholera before we are diagnosed  with it.. it’s preventable we only need to  improve our hygiene’’ Lilian said.

The residents   have faulted the county government for not taking seriously sanitation matters in the area especially water that is being administered to the residents.

Those have with  signs and symptoms of the disease   were rushed  to Mama Lucy Kibaki Hospital.
