The tourism city of Mombasa is stepping up efforts to get rid of heaps of garbage with planned employment of 65 cleaners.

The county government said in an advert it is looking to employ cleaners to supplement efforts by the department of environment to deal with the menace.

Governor Hassan Joho has been on the spot for failing to deal with the piling garbage in the county.

President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy, William Ruto, have also criticised the governor for failing to get rid of the waste.
