The country will soon have a state of the art incinerator to treat medical waste, thanks to a grant aid from the Government of Japan to the Government of Kenya.

The sh. 2 billion grant Aid for medical waste treatment follows an exchange of an agreement between the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources and a procurement agent Crown agencies limited on behalf of the Government of Japan.

The Government of Kenya team was led by the Director of Multilateral Environmental Agreements Mr. Richard Mwendandu while the Crown agencies team was led by Mr. Hiroshi Kumagae, during the exchange of the agreement.

The medical and hazardous  waste treatment facility was necessitated by the tons of waste churned out by hospitals across the country annually, and has no proper disposal.

The incinerator expected to be constructed on a Design, Build and Operate basis will be put up on land set aside by the Government at Ruai area of Nairobi.

Mr. Mwendadu who represented the Environment Principal secretary Dr. Richard Lesiyampe said that the Government of Kenya had already budgeted for the facility and was keen to commence the project that will ensure environmental safety in disposal of the medical waste.
