Mukuru kwa Njenga residents have asked Nairobi governor Mike Sonko to move swiftly and assist them to fight bedbugs. The residents on Wednesday told the Star that the bugs have invaded most homes and have rendered them sleepless nights. "We are suffering sleepless nights. The nasty animals keep us awake with an itch that cannot be ignored," one resident identified as Michelle said.
She said the infestation has been in the slum area for a while but has been ignored. As we speak we are suspecting witchcraft. Normal infestation is just a matter of hygiene but here the case is different.

Previously there has been such invasion in Nakuru, Murang'a and Lamu counties with residents calling on the national government to intervene.
