44

Nairobi City County environment  department  has embarked on a cleaning exercise of the Lang’ata Cemetery following an outcry from the members of the public.

The cleaning will involve clearing of overgrown bushes, litter picking and edge trimming of  undulated grounds at the Langata Cemetery.

The exercise is being undertaken by environment sector together with public health.

Langata cemetery has been under poor maintenance over the years with dilapidated paths and corridors making it difficult to those digging graves.

“Yes we received a directive from the governor to ensure the place is  clean and this includes trimming of grasses, slashing and  other maintenance exercise… This will give the residents of Nairobi  untroubled environment even as they love ones to rest…this exercise will not stop at Langata as we are also targeting recreational areas and other public areas,” Chief Officer Environment Hibrahim Otieno Nyakach told Ghetto Radio News.

Meanwhile those working at the Langata Cemetery commended the move saying it will now provide serene and tranquil environment to perform their jobs.

“It has been bushy  for a long time and we want to thank the county government for doing this so that we can have a good working environment .. digging graves was becoming difficult in this place,” Gerald Kariuki  a worker  at Langata Cemetery said.
