Kenya Ferry Services launches biannual cleaning exercise
Residents of Likoni, Mombassa were urged to be conscious of their environment and be 'the champions of their surroundings' during the launch of a biannual clean-up exercise at the ferry offices, which entails cleaning the entire areas accessed by ferry commuters on both the island itself and the mainland.
"It is important to sensitise all users about the need for a clean environment, considering we have currently 300,000 ferry users crossing this channel every day," said Kenya Ferry Services managing director Bakari Gowa.
"The commuters carry a lot of luggage with them, hence you find them leaving some behind and in turn littering both the waiting bays and the vessels."
Bakiri also said that the organisation will be providing waste bins at various spots through which ferry users pass, so they can dispose their litter.
"Other than tackling the subject of reducing fume emission on our fleet, KFS has been actively promoting environment protection for the benefit of the community," he said.
New ferries expected are to be added to the fleet and these will have two washrooms - one on the main deck and one on the passenger deck.
