Residents of Umoja 1 estate were angered after an encounter with a disturbing site of burnt laboratory test tubes with blood samples right outside the hospital.
The half test tubes containing human blood samples were scattered near the road opposite Umoja Catholic Church.
This road is used by people including school kids who go to Umoja 1 Primary School.
Now most residents are demanding answers from the institution for their recklessness.
“We are surprised that the health centre chose not to use the right way to dispose off medical waste. It is only fortunate that it wasn’t a school day, otherwise school children would have been exposed to health hazard from the discarded equipment,” a resident Mary Okello said.
Most of the area residents were in agreement that there is need for proper disposal mechanism by health centres operating in residential areas.
