Several Houses in Mathare Flooded with Sewer water


A section of residents in Mathare North area Nairobi are calling for help after their houses were flooded with Sewer water.

The residents say they have been living in sewer flooded houses for the past one week.

According to Anne Kaminda, a sewer line in the area recently blocked and started seeping into the plot where they reside.

“I have young kids and this water has been slowly flooding our houses. It stinks, we can’t cook, we can’t sleep, the smell is just unbearable.” She said

Khadija Issa also lamented how they fear that they may contract diseases from the open sewers.

Issa who has been forced to send her young child to her neighbor’s house says that they have tried reaching out to Nairobi Water and Sewerage company but to no avail.

“These water people have not come to fix it. It’s been a week now and even the local fundis just come and poke the pipes then they go.” She said

The residents are now calling on their area MCA to come to their aid arguing that they fear for their lives.
