The ministry of health in Machakos county has raised alarm on the consumption of fish without prior knowledge to the source. This is after a flock of dead fish were found at Mwania river and is suspected to been sneaking into the market.
On a statement, the head of health in the county Ancent Kituku urged residents in the area to avoid consumption of the health hazard fish, citing that investigation are ongoing to determine the cause of their death as well as the origin.
Kituku however dismissed rumors that Maruba dam is poisoned and could be the source of the dead fishes. He assured residents that a multi agency team is currently on the ground to determine the cause of the massive deaths of the fish.
People who might be sneaking the hazardous fish breed to the market have also been warned and strict measures will be taken against them. However, there is no any unique feature to identify them. This makes it difficult to spot them in the market.
