Raw Sewage Invades Houses in Githurai (VIDEO)

A video shared online showed a section of tenants in Githurai 45 estate maneuvering the sludge while salvaging their property trapped within their houses.

Raw sewage has been flowing into a section of houses in Nairobi's Githurai Estate, forcing some tenants to move out of the area.

A video shared online showed a section of tenants in Githurai 45 estate maneuvering the sludge while salvaging their property marred within their houses.

The residents further highlighted that the sewerage flowed into their houses on Sunday, February 7 after a heavy downpour that intensified on Monday with the continuous rainfall.

The residents believed that the situation could have resulted from a sewer line inspection chamber that was ruptured during road construction in the area.

"The sewerage flowed into a nearby river following the incident," highlighted one resident.

To prevent people from falling into the chamber, residents sealed it with stones, a scenario that only made matters worse.

The outlet of the sewer water was blocked, causing the sewerage wear to spill into the houses nearby.

“We have a story building nearby where our children now spend most of their days on people’s verandas because they cannot play in the dirty water,” another resident indicated.

She added that the government was yet to respond to the situation.

The sewerage water is likely to spark a number of health problems among residents of the estate such as malnutrition, diarrhoea, cholera, and typhoid fever. They occur especially when industrial and domestic effluent is mixed with water.
