Sand trade ‘the cause’ of wa­ter short­age in Ki­tui

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

Ki­tui county com­mis­sioner Boaz Cherotich has blamed il­le­gal and un­con­trolled sand har­vest­ing for se­ri­ous wa­ter prob­lems and en­vi­ron­men­tal degra­da­tion. He said on Wed­nes­day that sand min­ing de­stroys re­li­able wa­ter sources. Cherotich warned of an im­mi­nent crack­down on the un­li­censed trade.
