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

Kajiado County will benefit from at least Sh100 million to address perennial water shortage in selected areas in the region.

The money is part of a Sh2 billion grant by the European Union to several counties and will be channeled through the Water Sector Trust Fund.

Other counties set to benefit from similar Fund are Baringo, Kilifi, Kitui, West Pokot, Mandera, Samburu and Taita Taveta.

Governor Joseph Ole Lenku on Wednesday signed the memorandum of understanding in Nairobi over the projects in a ceremony witnessed by Water and Sanitation Cabinet Secretary Simon Chelugui.

The program by the fund is dubbed “Ending Drought Emergencies: Climate Proofed Infrastructure for Improved Water Supply and Sanitation in Arid and Semi-Arid Lands”.

“We are grateful for the gesture. We shall map out the very needy areas in our urban areas such as Kitengela and Ongata Rongai and Ngong and some of our driest areas to support our livestock farmers,” said Lenku.

Among key beneficiaries in the counties will be community water projects and especially those in the very poor rural areas and the urban poor.

County Water and Irrigation CEC Member Michael Semera and Chief Officer Douglas Konana were present when the governor signed the new deal.
