We cannot live like this in Nairobi.
Just look at the following pictures, I took them this morning, and they are presenting to us the sad scenarios we are living with in Nairobi- 50 Years into our Independence. Nairobi is this dirty at a time many people are jostling for political leadership in Kenya.
This is Muthurwa Bus and Matatu Terminus in Nairobi
We must hold each and every leader to account and demand to know what they did while in office to help address this deplorable situation. And what they intend to do to address this sad scenario. Waste is a huge raw resource and it can create plenty of employment opportunities for many people and help place bread on the table, pay school fee for the children, help pay medical bills and help pay for our rents. But no one cares.
The Political Leaders do not care, and those employed to manage our waste have no clue about Waste Management.
We at The Clean Kenya Campaign will bring you these images daily until the Political Leadership and the Directors of Environment wake up from their slumber.
This is off Landhies Road as you drive into Nairobi CBD
50 Years into our Independence, we still have not adopted the process of Separation of Waste at Source as a Waste Management Tool. Yet, the mandarins running these Departments are busy reading Newspapers in their offices and moving from Conference to Conference. This is not acceptable.
As we campaign for our next set of Political Leaders, let us hold each and every leader to account. We do not want theories and rhetorics. We want action. Lastly, as you view these photos, kindly join with us tomorrow at 8.00am for The Dandora Human Peace Caravan, courtesy of Freedom House, World Vision Kenya, the IEBC, the Provincial Administration and other Partners.
Let us all work for a Clean Kenya, a Clean Africa and a Clean General Election as a Transformative Deliverable as we turn 50 in Kenya.
