Huruma Flats residents fault NMS over piling garbage
Residents of Nairobi’s Huruma flats are up in arms over laxity of collection of garbage by the Nairobi Metropolitan Service in the estate.
Chris Chimanu a resident of Huruma Flats says that the garbage that has been piling for more than two weeks has become a health hazard and is exposing them to a possible outbreak of diseases.
According to Chimanu apart from the choking smell and flies, the garbage has partially blocked the road rendering it impassable to the residents and motorists.
“The collection point of the garbage used not to be near the estate where residents live. I don’t know what happened that made them move the collection point to this place endangering our lives,” said Chimanu.
“We have schools here, three schools to be precise and the presence of this garbage here is not pleasing at all,” he said.
He says that their attempts to reach NMS officials to address the issue has been futile.
They are appealing to their elected leaders to move swiftly and help them reach NMS to solve the issue.
