Residents threaten ‘jerrycan protest’ over water shortage


Migori town residents and traders yesterday threatened to stage a “jerrycan protest” if water supply is not restored by Friday. Kenya Power disconnected electricity at the Sh1.2billion water project set up by the African Development Bank and handed over in 2014. The project has a capacity to produce more than two million litres of clean water daily to serve over 200,000 residents, but it is lying idle as residents use untreated water. The project draws water from the River Oyani, Uriri constituency, and comes complete with 15 water kiosks to serve residents. The two said residents buy a 20 litre jerrycan of untreated water for Sh50.
