We are open to all con­trac­tors with wor­thy pro­pos­als, Nakuru county says

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics -

The Nakuru county govern­ment has agreed to meet all the war­ring par­ties in­volved in garbage col­lec­tion in Naivasha and re­solve a one-week im­passe.

The county has said it is ready to lis­ten to pro­pos­als from one of the war­ring groups and al­low it to col­lect garbage from es­tates not cur­rently cov­ered un­der the pro­gramme.

Last week, it of­fered ten­ders to new com­pa­nies from var­i­ous es­tates. This an­gered con­trac­tors that have been in it for years, lead­ing to a phys­i­cal war be­tween the two groups. One youth leader was ar­rested in a move that saw garbage col­lec­tion stall.

Naivasha sub­county ad­min­is­tra­tor Julius Nyaata yes­ter­day said there is room for all play­ers. He urged those locked out to present their pro­pos­als on where they in­tend to col­lect garbage and their cases will be con­sid­ered.
