Tuskys Supermarket Hyrax branch closed after sewage line bursts
Tuskys Supermarket Hyrax branch along the Nakuru-Nairobi highway has been closed down by the Nakuru Public Health Department after sewage line burst on Sunday afternoon flooding a section of the building.
County PHO Samuel King’ori said the sewage pipe located underneath the building burst causing a health scare.
Mr King’ori directed that all food stuff-raw and cooked suspected to be contaminated be disposed forthwith.
This is the second the incident at the supermarket following a similar one in May this year.
The health department says the supermarket has failed to heed to instructions to re-route the sewer-line even after the first incident occurred.
“This sewer line keeps bursting and must be rerouted to avoid an outbreak of waterborne diseases like cholera,” said Mr King’ori.
