Kenya Impose A Fine Of Sh10,000 Spitting And Urinating On Nairobi Streets

If you blow your nose without a handkerchief or tissue paper in Nairobi, you risk being fined between Sh10,000 and Sh500,000.

One also risks imprisonment of between six to 12 months.

New rules and regulations aimed at keeping Nairobi clean are contained in the Nairobi City County Public Nuisance Bill, 2021 that has been signed into law.

Other misdemeanours include urinating in undesignated spaces and spitting on the streets.

In a statement, acting Nairobi Governor Ann Kananu said Nairobi residents should familiarise themselves with the new law.

“Nairobi is the face of Kenya. We all need a clean and hygienic environment to live and work in,” she said.

The new law also prohibits the discharge of dirty water, sewer, or effluent into streets or water channels, discharge of oils into roads or water channels, and obstruction of roads or streets.

It also prohibits residents from allowing trees and hedges in their homes or places of work to obstruct streets or footpaths.

The new law also criminalises riding motorcycles or driving on footpaths, playing loud music, and smoking in undesignated places.

Nairobi county attorney Lydia Kwamboka said application of the law will be strict, thus residents should take more responsibility.

“The Act empowers the county to take all lawful, necessary and reasonable practical measures for maintenance of the county at all times in a clean and sanitary condition, abatement and prevention of public nuisance and remedy any nuisance,” she said.

County environment executive Larry Wambua lauded Riruta MCA Kariuki Kiriba for coming up with the bill at the assembly and ensuring that all stages were well articulated.

His copy was unmistakably dazed by the deed of Kuami Eugene and uncovered he has never seen such cash and contemplated whether it is legal to use in Ghana.

The presenters and panelists on the show all applauded and communicated appreciation to Kuami Eugene for what he did.

Kuami Eugene then, at that point, took pictures with his copy who looked actually like one another.

From the composition to the haircut and method of dressing, they strike some resemblance.

BREAKING: South Africa’s Final Apartheid-Era President Dies Age 85

FW de Klerk, the former president of South Africa and the last white man to lead the country, has died at the age of 85.

Mr de Klerk, who was also a key figure in the nation’s transition to democracy, had been diagnosed with cancer this year, a spokesman said.

Mr de Klerk was head of state between September 1989 and May 1994.

In 1990 he announced he was releasing anti-apartheid leader Nelson Mandela, leading to multi-party polls in 1994.

A statement from the former president’s FW de Klerk Foundation on Thursday morning read: “Former President FW de Klerk died peacefully at his home in Fresnaye (Cape Town) earlier this morning following his struggle against mesothelioma cancer.”

The foundation had announced the diagnosis – a cancer that affects the lining of the lungs – in June this year.

FW de Klerk had taken over from PW Botha as the head of the National Party in February 1989 and the following year announced he was removing the ban on parties that included Mr Mandela’s African National Congress (ANC).

His actions helped bring an end to apartheid-era South Africa, and he became one of the two deputy presidents after the multi-party elections in 1994 that saw Mr Mandela become president.

Mali Parliament Vice-President Freed

Mali’s interim parliament vice-president has been freed, weeks after he was arrested for public order offences.

Issa Kaou N’Djim was arrested in October and a ruling on his case is expected in December.

He was accused of making “subversive remarks”, which were not disclosed.

N’Djim is a supporter of Mali’s President Assimi Goïta but is a critic of Interim Prime Minister Choguel Kokalla Maïga.

His lawyers had said his detention was illegal because of a parliamentary immunity.
