Cleanliness is next to godliness, they say. While prompting rise in diseases such as cholera, untidy environments portray a bad image in the society. Though referred as the Green Town, the fight against untidiness in Kericho County is far from being eradicated.
Kericho Open Air Market and its environs are agonizingly turning into garbage collection sites. Traders earning a living from this area have lamented over the accumulation of uncollected garbage for several weeks now. This situation has seen the number of potential buyers drop drastically. Subsequently, the public has also been blamed for reckless deposition of garbage.
The Kericho County Council responsible for collecting and disposing off garbage have been accused of what residents termed as "sleeping on the job". Businesses operating about the garbage collection sites have had to endure losses too. The stench emerging from these points have sent consumers who would rather buy from serene environments.
Residents now want the County Council to ensure maintenance of hygiene and dispose off garbage on daily routine.
