Residents of Jangwani area in Mathare North are living in fear of a cholera outbreak due to an ongoing illegal construction on top of a sewer line in the area.
According to the residents a man only identified as pastor Monde from Redeemed Rival Gospel church has refused to listen to their pleas to stop the church’s construction.
Monde has instead gone ahead with construction of the church on top of the sewer line which the residents term as a health hazard in waiting.
They now want the government to intervene and help stop the construction which they say may lead to the sewer line bursting during the rainy season.
Charles wambugu told Ghetto Radio that they reported the matter to the area chief who has remained mum on the matter
”we have reported the issue to our area chief Mr.Mulinge but no action has been taken against the church.” he said
