NEMA issues warnings against garbage dumping to protect environment

The National Environment Management Authority (Nema) has issued a warning to traders and locals against dumping of garbage in major towns and market centres. Some trading centres like Mbale, Majengo and Chavakali have reported increased cases of garbage dumping along the streets. The Authority has now rolled out a drive to sensitise the locals on responsible waste disposal after complaints that the towns have been experiencing flooding due to blockage of the drainage system by garbage.https://www.standardmedia.co.ke/environment-climate/article/2001484359/nema-issues-warning-on-dumping-in-urban-centres

    People must be held accountable for their actions. This is going to go a long way in changing the environment we live in

                  Dumping of garbage poses a big threat to the environment and human health as well as all animals, and anybody caught dumping garbage should be delta with accordingly

                        Dumping garbage not only pollutes the land and water but also poses a threat to wildlife and human health. It's important for individuals and communities to be aware of the consequences of their actions and to dispose of their waste responsibly. By raising awareness and enforcing regulations, NEMA is taking a step in the right direction towards creating a more sustainable and eco-friendly environment.

                          In as much as I agree on warnings, I think NEMA has a responsibility to provide solutions to the dumping problem. Afterall that's part of its mandate

                            Those doing unreasonable dumpage should be prosecuted to act as a lesson to careless dumping

                              Garbage dumping not only harms the environment but also affects the cleanliness and aesthetics of urban areas.

                                So good for NEMA to call out this wayward behaviour that must stop for us to protect our cities again climate pollution. Clean cities are the way to create a better and a sustainable future.

                                    Everyone needs to take their won initiative when it comes to littering and dumping of garbage. Great that NEMA is taking stringent action
