Dumpsite Killing Fish in Makupa Creek
FISH and sea animals are dying at Makupa and Tudor creeks, fishermen have said.
They said the Kibarani dumpsite is poisoning the fish. Kibarani is the biggest dumpsite in Mombasa. Fishermen said a lot of fish have died in two months.
They said sewage from the dumpsite gets into the ocean and kills the fish. The water has also turned brown, making it difficult for the remaining fish to breed.
“Nowadays you visit the ocean to fish only to find the fish floating on water,” fisherman Ali Omar said.
