‘Mulika Kabisa, We Shall Split The Fine!’ Nairobi Governor Sakaja To Reward Anyone Who Records, Reports Illegal Dumping

Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja has urged the County’s residents to remain vigilant and report to relevant authorities any instances of illegal dumping that they might witness across the City and its environs.

Sakaja made the call to action in a Twitter post on Wednesday accompanied by photographs of county officials unclogging drainage systems in different parts of Nairobi.

“As we unclog the drainage system throughout the city, let’s kindly desist from further illegal dumping,” said Sakaja.

“Ukiona mtu akidump and you record, mulika kabisa; we arrest, prosecute and split the fine. Will work on the county law to provide for this. Let’s keep our city clean.”


In October, Governor Sakaja blamed the garbage menace in Nairobi on the previous administration, saying Nairobi’s current waste predicament is a result of neglect, illegal dumping and contractors downing their tools over unpaid dues totaling to Ksh.3 billion.

In the same month, Sakaja noted that his government will float a green bond that will be used to build a mass transit system and expand the infrastructure for waste management and water distribution.

Part of the green bond, Sakaja said, will be used in sorting out the garbage issue in Nairobi by converting waste to energy.

According to Sakaja, his administration has collected at least 70 tonnes of garbage since taking over, and efforts are underway to find a long-term solution.
