There is NO ONE with sufficient KNOWLEDGE and Experience Employeed by KMS to PROPERLY supervise the workforce,writing of which where is their PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT for their health ? IT MUST BE KMC's DUTY to supply such equipment.


QUESTION OF THE DAY August 6, 2020

The Roads Authority and the KMC should monitor how the drains, along the Westfield-Churchill Town stretch, are being cleaned. People are being engaged to clean it without proper protective gears. Furthermore, they put all the mud on the sidewalk without any vehicle to carry the refuse to a dumb site. This is left for days and rain could easily sweep the refuse back into the drains. There is also evidence of the mud being dumped at the junctions of adjacent roads thus subjecting the neighbourhood to health risks. Concrete slabs are also left to lie about while the drains remain uncovered thus subjecting pedestrians especially the visually impaired to risk of falling into them. With heavy down pour human beings could be carried away to their death.

The Public Health authorities should be part of the supervisors to find out where the mud from the drains is dumped since it could pose serious health threats .

A vehicle should be left standing to carry the mud without any delay as cleaning of the drains is done .The mud should also be deposited at an appropriate place to avoid contamination and ill health.

It is not clear who is given the contract to clean drains in the KMC. The way it is done is unprofessional and unethical. The workers are left to wallow in a pool of dirty stinking mud without any protective gears. The Unions should be active in protecting such workers.

The dirt that is removed is not put in transports and ferried to safe destination with immediacy. It is left lying about as eye sores to pollute the environment for days.The Environmental agency should step in to safeguard the environment.

Those who give contracts should ensure that those who carryout such tasks have all the facilities necessary to remove every dirt from the drain on the same day. All media houses should monitor such exercises to hold institutions accountable to the Public.
