Residents of Milimani area in Mzee Wanyama Village Nakuru County have protested over sand quarries in the area that have been exposing them to environmental, health and social dangers.
Addressing media in the area,the locals said in addition, thugs have taken advantage of the quarry mines where they are now hiding during the night to hijack people and they now fear that the thugs might turn to their girls.
The residents are now calling upon NEMA and the ministry of lands in Nakuru to intervene.
They say the mining has already squeezed the roads and there is no way they can get piped water since the routes to pass the pipes have been left with very huge openings.
