The ministry of water has revived water services that had stalled for close to one week in various parts of Kapenguria. Water services had been paralyzed by the workers at water supplies who are demanding their salary arrears of six months which amount close to 4 million.


The Chief Officer in the ministry of water Milka Psiwa led the efforts of the revival of water supply services saying that her ministry will take over the operations from Kapenguria Water and Sewerage Company that was in charge. She pointed out that water is vital especially in Kapenguria hospital which depends on water supply from the Kapenguria plant for its operations.

While visiting the various water supply plants among them Kapenguria, Makutano, Tartar, Karas and Chepareria, the Chief Officer urged the striking workers to remain at work as they resolve their salary issue, “We’re committed in ensuring that you get your payments as soon as possible. But meanwhile, let us offer the much needed services to our people. Let’s exercise a little more patience.” She also led in the repair and rehabilitation work of some of the water supply plants which were in poor state, while ensuring the treatment of water before its pumping.

Mrs. Psiwa also added that her ministry is working on streamlining the operations of the various supplies in an effort to ensure that the county gets revenue. As it is now, the parastatal that was in charge of the services is in arrears of 3.7M electricity bill.
She maintained that water shortage in most parts of the county is dear to her, and hence her ministry will work tirelessly to ensure that the common mwananchi gets access to clean and sufficient water.
The CO said that they will embark on a process of household mapping to ascertain the number of houses with water supply. She added that her ministry will come up with a billing system, aimed at generating revenue from the services.
“For now, there is no proper billing system in place. This makes it very difficult to monitor those who have paid for water services, and those that have not paid. This has to change.”
