Residents of Gilanis Estate in Nakuru have decried poor used-condom disposal practices in the area.

This is a heavily populated estate, mainly occupied by low income people. Residents have raised an alarm over the numerous used-condoms that are found everywhere, terming such behavior a nuisance.

“My children are exposed to a lot of risks from these condoms- they are even ballooning them.  I can’t allow my children to go out and play freely.  When walking around with my kids, I become embarrassed when the children inquire about these ‘balloons’ that people throw out-   I normally pretend that I am not interested in their conversation,” says Eunice Wambui, a Gilanis resident.

“Is it possible for the Ministry of Health Services to educate residents on how to dispose used-condoms so that children do not come into contact with them?” Asks Ms Mary Kinyua, another Gilani’s resident.

“It’s an embarrassment. Those who do this should be ashamed of themselves. They should make good use of the pit latrines that are common in this area,” says Ms Emily Wanjiku.

“I urge fellow residents to take good care of our environments.  We should even start occasional  communal cleaning exercises”.  James Wainaina, another resident suggests.
