According to Kinyua the heaps of garbage have built up in the area due to improper disposal of garbage.

Kinyua recalls years back when the area  currently  embroiled  in a heap of garbage  was water reservoir, the water that the residents  used to water their kitchen-gardens.

“As at  now there is no fresh  water available. Most of the sources have been contaminated by the underground water from the dumpsite. We are getting  challenges in keeping up with hygiene in the area because  of scarcity  of fresh water,” Kinyua  added.
