We are bold in presenting our news as we move to all Maa counties across the country.

A day after former KQ CEO rejected Governor Joseph Lenku’s water board job, the county government on Thursday said it is shopping for a replacement.

Water CECM Florence Waiganjo says Governor Joseph Lenku is shopping for another board boss.

County Water CECM, Florence Waiganjo confirmed receipt of Naikuni’s rejection adding that the county appreciates he is a busy man serving in several boards in the country.

“We accepted his letter which he did in a civil manner, and the governor is already shopping for a right candidate for the position because this is a critical sector in this county,” said Waiganjo.

The minister, however, said the one to be picked for the position rejected by Naikuni has to be a local qualified person who will understand Kajiado’s terrain and its water shortage issues.

“We are happy that Naikuni promised us in his letter that he will be always ready to be consulted every time he is free on water issues. That is very kind of him,” said she.

She said governor Lenku’s ban on the sale of un-desalinated water in the county at the end of January is still on adding already four boreholes have been sunk in Kitengela and now waiting to be fixed with desalination units.

“We have to lead by example and this is the reason we have fixed four boreholes at a cost of over Sh6 million each so that other stakeholder in water vending industry can follow,” Waiganjo said.

Waiganjo said landscape in Kajiado and its terrain cannot be compared to other counties like Kiambu which has a lot of water that is distributed through gravity.

She said distribution of water in Kajiado to homes require fuel pumps that require electric power or fuel generators and therefore is causing major challenges.

The CECM for water said the people of Kitengela should appreciate what the county government is doing to provide them with water after the Export Processing Zone outlet failed several months ago.

Salty water in Kitengela is sold at Sh50 per 20-liter jerricans in homes by vendors and families are spending thousands of shillings every month for the commodity.

Residents in estates formerly supplied by EPZ water have removed water meters and send back to their owners because they say have no benefit to them.

Other argued that they have been paying standing charges for the meters and yet they have not been receiving water for the last three years.
