Country Director's Message

we call on all stakeholders to join us in this great cause

Martin Muriithi, Country Director


Rapid urbanization continues to create many sanitation problems in Kenya. The country has not prioritized the setting up of a modern, effective and comprehensive waste management infrastructure. Budgets for effective management of waste are also minimal. 

The country also lacks a national oversight team responsible for waste management legislation, infrastructure design, operations management, and monitoring.

The COVID-19 pandemic has for example shown us the relation between sanitation and public health. In the last few months we have seen governments sanitizing public places and disseminating public messages for people to wash hands frequently and dispose waste properly.

Public health protection caused by poor sanitation is therefore very important and should be pursued by all without any individual, political or business interest and agenda. No one should be left behind – it’s a time for solidarity and social responsibility.  

At Clean Up Kenya, through our various programs, we continue to pursue the goals to protect and care, to highlight issues, and to defend the constitutional right to a clean Kenya.

To this end we call upon all stakeholders to join us in this noble cause.  Let’s it be a thing of the past to not do anything and let’s do it for the generations to come.

Our sacrifices and contributions, knowledge and resources, will deliver a Kenya we are all proud of.

Martin E. Muriithi | Country Director
