LOSING THE RAT RACE

first_imgAfter not getting any response from the landlord about the hole in her wall, Marquez called county Health Services in January. At that time, an inspector cited the property for seven violations. “The manager said \ would be fixed but it never was,” said Marquez. According to county health department records, in 2005 inspectors issued 11 violations at the same address, Ogamba said. pam.wight@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3029160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! WHITTIER – A county Department of Health Services inspector issued seven health code violations Tuesday at a rental property in Whittier where the tenant complained of a rodent problem. Inspector Aniceto Hernando Jr. found gaps at the bottom of two doors, screens missing from openings leading under the house, and hedges that were not six or more inches off the ground, as required by code. In addition, walls in a bathroom shower must be repaired to eliminate a possible mold problem, the inspection found. Renter Phyllis Marquez said she moved into the house on Rincon Drive a year ago. Soon after she moved in, the landlord had a wall torn out in order to fix the plumbing fixtures behind it. But the 4-foot-by-2-foot hole was never repaired, Marquez said. As a result, rats enter, she said. She has to constantly wash her dishes. Clothes stored in any drawers must be washed of rat feces and urine, she said. Landlord Rod Anderson did not return five phone calls made between Monday and Tuesday, seeking comment. The property’s manager, Rae Moore, said she would not comment. Health officials said Marquez’s concerns about rodents were valid. They advised that she and her family not inadvertently ingest any rat urine or feces. “Health-related problems must be addressed within 24 hours,” said Obi Ogamba, manager of the county Department of Health Services’ environmental health and housing inspection bureau. “Things like the hole in the wall would mean we’d give them a minimum of two weeks to fix. \ would have to have a good reason to get any extension.” last_img read more

Mururi at a loss after Homeboyz sacking

first_img“This is a decision that I can say is shocking because we have done well in the first leg and we are in the top eight positions. I can’t understand but maybe there were other reasons because it can’t be performance,” Mururi lamented.“I leave with a good heart because I am proud of the work that I have put in at the club. I have worked to lift the profile of this club and it can now be regarded as a big team,” the youthful tactician further stated.Homeboyz are placed ninth in the Kenyan premier League standings with 24 points, only four off second placed Ulinzi Stars.Speaking to Capital Sport, Homeboyz chairman Cleophas Shimanyula says they took the decision because the coach was unsettled, re-visiting the instance at the beginning of the season where he resigned and was headed to Vihiga United before coming back.Kakamega Homeboyz players Moses Mudavadi (left) and Moses Chikati (right) join Allan Wanga in celebrating during their Kenyan Premier League match against Tusker FC in Nairobi on May 26, 2018.

Also, the results were not pleasing considering the kind of squad we have,” Shimanyula noted.However, Mururi says the claims that he was unsettled were false.“Yes, there was a point that I had left but he called me and we sat down and ironed out issues and started working well together. The claims that I am unsettled are not true,” the tactician defended himself.Nonetheless, he has promised to be back in the Premier League soon and has hinted he might be on the touchline when the second leg kicks off next week.He says he has received three offers already and Capital Sport learns that Sofapaka have made contact.“I will take a day or two of rest and talk to my advisor but rest assured is that I will be back in the Premier League. I have several offers which are already on the table and I am certain I will pick one of them,” he added.Former Tusker FC head coach Paul Nkata during a past Kenyan Premier League match.
