“Today I’m happy to announce that a section of Kangemi area cemetery, which was turned into illegal dumping site is now under rehabilitation. Soon, residents will use it as a parking,” Sonko stated.

He asked residents to ensure they dump their garbage at designated areas.

The county has been on the forefront to end the garbage menace in the city.

Early this month, Sonko launched a monthly cleaning initiative in the 85 wards.
