Town Clerk Sorry for Filth, Vows to Clean Up Mobasa
Mombasa town clerk Tubman Otieno has apologised to Mombasa residents for the garbage pile up in the city. He said the council had been unable to collect garbage for a week due to the breakdown of the only operational garbage truck that the council has. Efforts to repair it have been futile. The council hired two other garbage trucks, which also broke down. Otieno said the council has an inadequate fleet of vehicles including five lorries, of which only three or four are operational.
