Garissa town is one of the fastest growing towns here in Kenya and East Africa. Increase in population equally means doubling of waste generated. I wish to challenge each and every resident to take responsibility at household or institutional level to manage and clean up their waste. On my daily routine this morning, I came across a forgotten and neglected dump site. It is located around Township CDF Offices and the old UNICEF Offices in Garissa. Someone somewhere needs to wake up and clean this mess. All the designated dumping sites should be mapped so as to allow easy garbage collection. This is the current State of Environment in this neighbourhood.

Behind the Wheels is back from Dadaab. Indeed Dadaab is rising. Despite hosting the world's largest Refugee Camps, this place is the next big town after Garissa. It is one of the fastest growing towns and the locals have invested so much making it habitable for the residents. There is a somali saying, "There is no problem, Dadaab is evergreen" A place to call second home. This is Hanshi Palace Hotel. It has changed the entire area.

Behind the Wheels Season 1 Episode 2 continues to Libahlow village in Balambala Sub-County. This time my focus is on minerals around this area. Garissa County is blessed with natural resources with area having murram, gemstones, forests, wildlife and above all sand. We are self sufficient and it is time that we be self-reliant. The magnitude of resources available is enough for prospering this county. We can develop ourselves if at all right investments are made in the right places and purposely for the right people.
