Climate warning

West Pokot residents cries due to problems caused by nearby limestone quarry

Ortum area Resident in West Pokot County are urgently appealing for the intervention of relevant authorities to effectively regulate the uncontrolled mining of limestone at a nearby quarry. The indiscriminate blasting and extraction of these valuable minerals by a local investor have not only become a grave health hazard but also jeopardize the structural integrity of their homes, as evidenced by the emergence of cracks in their walls. The concerned residents are calling for immediate action to mitigate these detrimental effects and ensure the responsible and sustainable management of the quarry, safeguarding their well-being and property.
