TUG-OF-WAR

Daily Nation (Kenya) - - COUNTY -

Muwasco says very few peo­ple have heeded Mr Wa Iria’s or­der, not­ing that 82pc of con­sumers have set­tled their wa­ter bills. About 12 plumbers em­ployed by the county gov­ern­ment to re­con­nect wa­ter to homes dis­con­nected by Muwasco have been ar­rested and charged in Mu­rang’a law courts. They were given bonds of Sh500,000 each. On Sat­ur­day, the gover­nor said he would or­gan­ise a fundraiser to se­cure their re­lease.

Wa­ter and Ir­ri­ga­tion CEC Paul Macharia was also ar­rested over wa­ter-re­lated charges. He was re­leased on a Sh200,000 cash bail. Mr Iria said he would dis­trib­ute whis­tles to res­i­dents to sound the alert when­ever wa­ter com­pany staff came to dis­con­nect their wa­ter sup­ply.
