Kisumu bus terminus has been closed for fumigation and massive clean-up.
The fumigation is being conducted by Kibos sugar and allied factories using their locally made sanitizers.
Market Milimani ward MCA Seth Kanga is overseeing the process under the watch of armed police officers.
Kanga says the clean-up was necessary to ensure the environment around the terminus is up to the standards.
Illegal structures were also pulled down in an effort to keep COVID-19 out of Kisumu.
Speaking to the press during the clean-up, Kanga explained that the structures were an eye shore and the traders committee arrived at the decision to ring a facelift to the bus terminus.
Kanga says the illegal structures will not be allowed at the bus terminus.
The bus park chairman Shem Ochuodho says the fumigation exercise targeted shops, county offices and police post at the bus park.
Ochuodho appealed to the county to always organize for periodic clean-up of the bus terminus after tones of waste was recovered.
He appealed to traders to maintain cleanliness once the park will be opened noting that illegal structures that have been a hideout for criminals will not be allowed back.
A trader, Joseph Abiola who is the immediate MCA for South West Kisumu says the clean-up exercise has given the bus terminus a new life.
Abiola applauded the area MCA Kanga for his steadfast to lead the exercise to ensure a clean environment for his people.
