Deputy governor runs away from Mombasa garbage woes

Mombasa County government, which is in a spot for growing heaps of uncollected garbage, is blaming the police and Treasury for crippling its ability to clean the mess.

Yesterday, Deputy Governor William Kingi claimed police had colluded with a private garbage collector to impound county trucks, thereby, frustrating their efforts to clean the city.

Two weeks ago, county secretary Francis Thoya blamed the garbage woes on the national government for delaying the disbursement of funds, which would have enabled the County government to buy cleaning equipment.

Speaking on phone, Changamwe OCPD Peter Omanwa said police had not impounded any vehicles belonging to the county government, urging the county administrators to desist from dragging police into their garbage woes.

Environment executive Godfrey Nyongesa said they are in the process of collecting the garbage, which has left residents and traders anxious as it was linked to cholera outbreak in the region .
