The Nairobi City County government has introduced ambitious clean up initiative in residential estates in a bid to spruce up the image of the capital city and its environs.
City dwellers will be required to participate in the exercise every third Saturday of the month in what the county government hopes will develop into a culture of environmental conservation through responsible garbage disposal.
The mess is worse in residential estates where the county government has now moved in to promote cleanliness.
In Mwiki, Kasarani constituency residents came all out and got down and dirty in apparent effort to change the narrative.
Leading the clean up dubbed Saba Saba Ngarisha Jiji was Charles Mutinda the Sub County Administrator in the office of the Governor who said the exercise will be conducted monthly and replicated in all 85 wards in 17 constituencies.
He warned that residents found illegally disposing of garbage will be penalized heavily.
Authorities hope the collective exercise will inculcate a culture of responsible waste management
