Share post:

Residents of Amoso in Migori could probably see a halt to the problem of water shortage in area.

This is after the county government completed a 2 year stalled water project.

The project which had been commissioned by Migori Governor Okoth Obado will see 24 cubic meters of water supplied daily to the community.

Our target was to finish it and other projects commissioned by the Governor before his term ends

The Project

Speaking at the launch, Water and Energy Chief Officer Fidel Majiwa acknowledged that the project was not fully completed as it did not supply enough water for the community.

Majiwa noted that the county has plans to adjust the capacity to 50 cubic meters in the coming days.

 “45 percent of this project was done in the previous year after its commissioning,” he said.

“Our target was to finish it and other projects commissioned by the Governor before his term ends,” furthered Majiwa.

The officer further noted that schools and churches will see a constant water supply.

The water points in the various schools will also serve the local community.
