Makueni households to access clean water by 2020

Clean water, Makueni, 2020

Speaking during a media briefing with the Danish ambassador to Kenya Mette Knudsen in Nairobi, Makueni Governor Kivutha Kibwana expressed
confidence that every household will have access
to fresh water by 2020, stating that water budget is
the biggest development allocation set aside by his
government.
“I am excited that tomorrow they will come to
Makueni with the ambassador and we will go to
Kalawa so we can see from the citizens… ordinary
people themselves the efficacy of the technology,”
said Kibwana.
He says that water scarcity in Makueni will be a thing
of the past.
“My prayer is to see women access water from their
households and not walk for miles and miles in
search of water.”
Knudsen urged the National Government to cooperate with County Governments to ensure the water problem in the entire country is fully resolved.
“As the Danish Government, we are really committed
in providing water solutions especially in areas that
receive low rainfall and we are happy to be partnering with the Kenyan Government not only in water
services projects but also in other sectors,” she said.
“I would ask the County and National Governments
to support each other and collaborate in all the projects meant to benefit the ordinary citizen.”
The county will be working with Grundfos Water
Utility Company which is the world’s leading pump
manufacturer, which will ensure smooth supply of
water in the region.
Grundfos CEO Mads Nipper assured to share their
knowledge and technology that will see perennial
water shortage in Makueni addressed.
