Governor Natembeya Launches Water Project to Benefit 220 households
Trans Nzoia Governor George Natembeya launched a water project to provide clean water to Namanjalala residents.
The boreholes will serve over 220 households in the area as well as surrounding villages.
While addressing residents during the event, the county chief noted that the Namanjalala area is prone to floods. Young girls and women often have to walk long distances to find water as wells are always flooded or collapsed.
He said the county administration would fund the seven-day project that will produce over 3,000 liters per hour.
Governor Natembeya said that the County government plans to drill 20 boreholes this financial year. Additionally, 11 boreholes drilled earlier will be equipped with a solar hybrid pumping system, a community water point, pipeline distribution, and a water kiosk.
The project complements county government efforts in achieving the goal of having every homestead connected to water,” said Governor Natembeya.
He also added that the project is in line with the county government’s vision of ensuring access to drinking water for residents.
He said it’s a way of improving hygiene and enhancing agricultural production which plays a critical role in the county’s development agenda.
In her part, Deputy Governor Philomenah Bineah said the Trans Nzoia administration is committed to ensuring that all development projects are carried out as promised.
In attendance were: the County Secretary Mrs. Truphosa Amere, HSC, CEC PSM Mr. Samson Ojwang, CEC Water and Environment Mr. Patrick Gacheru, and Chief Officer Water Dorothy Musikoyo among others.
