Residents along Isara-Mashuuru-Imaroro road launch complaint with Nema against road company that dispose raw sewage into their farms.

Community leaders led by Alex Ntaisi handed over the complaint note to Kajiado County Nema’s Director, Peter Wafula on Wednesday morning detailing how Stecol Corporation Company workers dispose raw human excreta in their farms.

Ntaisi also told Wafula how their children brave the daily dust emanating from the road they are building, adding that their direct complaints to the company have been ignored.

“Our children are getting sick every other day because the dust coming from the road is unmanageable. Our cows cannot graze because all the grass has been covered by dust from the road,” said Ntaisi.


He added that a section of 30 km on the road that is under construction has made their lives unbearable.

“Hundred meters from each direction on the sides of the road is covered with dust along with our houses on the sides. People cannot cook during the day because of the overwhelming dust,” Ntaisi told Nema director in the county.

While responding to the issue, Wafula told the Star he had received similar complaints last week, and he immediately ordered the company to water the road they are working on.

“I also ordered them to provide me with details of how and where they dispose raw sewage. I told them to furnish me with the details of who collects the raw sewage. I am expecting their full report on Thursday (tomorrow),” said Wafula.

Wafula said at the time he received the complaint from the residents, the Chinese construction company had already done 30km on the road that starts from Kajiado town.

“This is a very serious issue, and we may be compelled to take action against the Chinese company if found to have flouted the law,” said Wafula.

He pledged to the residents that his office from now on will monitor the work on the road until its conclusion.
