Residents of Milimani in Ngong were left in shock after discovering over 1000 condoms suspected to have been left by Merrymakers from Nairobi over the weekend.
Other leftovers found include Whisky, empty face masks, and wine bottles polluting the environment. Due to the situation a meeting was held between the police, residents, Kenya Forest department, and Kenya wildlife services.
The resident living at the foothills of Ngong hills told the area police boss Rashid Abdalla that over Two hundred cars drive into the area on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
Ngong residents led by one Henry Kinuthia lamented that they feared for their kids who graze animals around the picnic area. He said that their children may contract the disease if they come to contact with the filth left by the revelers.
“We are worried about our kids who come to fend for animals in this area. It’s very likely they can contract diseases that’s the truth,” he said.
He said that loud music is played by the merrymakers at night and uses powerful flashlights which cause them to lack sleep. The police boss Abdalla said that due to the report the picnic area will be closed at 3 pm on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
Also, the police, game rangers, and forest guards will be deployed to ensure the merrymakers don’t flout government directives in the fight against the spread of coronavirus.
He warned that anyone found flouting the rules will not escape the law. He said that anyone caught flouting the government directives will be driven to a forced quarantine.
