Following fruitful discussions with sand harvesting and stakeholders we have today lifted the ban on sand harvesting in Kajiado County.
This is after we came to an understanding on strict guidelines on their operations that will be subject to review in the next 3 months.
This follows weeks of meetings discussing how best we can streamline the industry.
We have agreed that;
1. No trucks will be allowed to overload.
2. All loaders should display authentic stickers on their trucks.
3. There will be no dumping of sand along the roads.
4. All sand loaders should acquire NHIF Cards and be members of registered SACCOs.
The County Government of Kajiado will work hand in hand with the National Government through the offices of the County Commissioner to ensure that all these regulations are adhered to for the benefit of the sand harvesters and the surrounding communities.
