‘‘Those  companies releasing their chemicals and waste in to Nairobi must be closed  immediately we are not going to allow them to continue operating.’’ Sonko noted.

To emphasize his point, Mike Sonko took to his facebook page to issue a sterning warning to polluters of Nairobi river.

“My government together with other Gov’t agencies including NEMA shut down at least 25 factories which discharge effluent into Nairobi river. Other three factories to be shut down this evening”He wrote.

He further directed closure of all hospitals fond of carrying out illegal abortions  be shut down and their licences cancelled.

According to Sonko his government  will not sit down and watch rogue health facilities joking  with human life and disposing  bodies into the river.

Nairobi City County Environment  Minister Veska Kangogo  and Chief Officer security and compliance Tito Kilonzi have been tasked by the governor to ensure the directives are effected  promptly without delays.

Nairobi county government has so far retrieved more than three bodies from Nairobi river a clear indication that  it is being used as a dumping site of aborted babies and even newborns.
