Users blamed the county government and the National Environment Management Authority (Nema) for not issuing strict instructions to aspirants for various political offices who hired agents to put up their posters.

Some proposed that the two institution instruct the nomination losers to remove their posters across the city and warn those still in the race for the August 8 polls against littering schools and hospitals.
