PROJECT WAS TO END ENDEMIC PROBLEM
Mwingi water crisis has been endemic. In August last year, Tanathi Water Services Board corporate affairs chief manager Daudi Kitonga said the 105km second phase of the Kiambere-Mwingi Water Pipeline Project would provide water to 56,000 residents in Mwingi North constituency. He said the Sh1.4 billion project would end the perennial water shortage in Tseikuru, Kyuso and Mumoni subcounties. Kitonga spoke at Kalatine trading centre in Mumoni South during a public meeting on the project. He said residents of Kalatine, Mukong’a and Nguungani would also get water. During the meeting, Kitonga introduced officials of Markers Consulting, which carried out an environmental impact assessment.
