WHAT THE LAW SAYS ABOUT WA­TER CON­TROL, BEN­E­FITS

The Star (Kenya) - - Big Read / Water Supply -

The re­cent es­tab­lish­ment of the Sh23 bil­lion Itare dam (Bomet), the Sh30 bil­lion Ar­ror (El­geyo Marak­wet) and Mu­ranga’s Sh6.8 bil­lion North­ern Wa­ter Col­lec­tor Tun­nel are elic­it­ing mixed re­ac­tions. The law calls for re­spon­si­ble use of nat­u­ral re­sources. Ar­ti­cle 69 of the con­sti­tu­tion reads: The state shall en­sure sus­tain­able ex­ploita­tion, util­i­sa­tion, man­age­ment and con­ser­va­tion of the en­vi­ron­ment and nat­u­ral re­sources, and en­sure the eq­ui­table shar­ing of the ac­cru­ing ben­e­fits.”
