Farmers in Mai Mahiu, Naivasha are up in arms over the county dumping site and want it either relocated from Karima village in the area or rehabilitated.
The farmers have termed the site as unhealthy and a source of disease for the families and livestock warning that they will legal action if no measures are taken by the county.
This came as it emerged that some farmers had already relocated from the area due to some of the waste that had been swept to their farms.
Also tens of livestock and wild animals from the nearby Mt Longonot national park had died after consuming some of the garbage from the unmanaged site.
According to one of the farmers Geoffrey Githiri, majority of the farms could not be tilled due to the garbage that was spreading by the day.
Githiri added that they had raised the issue with the county government but no action had been taken with the situation getting worse by the days.
“Tens of families, livestock and even wild animals have been adversely affected by this dumpsite which left our land barren,” he said.
The sentiments were echoed by another farmer Samuel Njuguna who called on the county government to fence the site or dig up pits where the garbage could be disposed.
He noted that medical equipments and poisonous chemicals from the dumpsite were finding their way to their homes putting a risk to their lives.
