Residents of Mavoko Township, Athi River, Mlolongo and Syokimau will soon quench their long-time thirst after State House spokesperson Hussein Mohamed announced that President William Ruto is set to commission the Mavoko Water Supply Project on Friday.
In his statement to the media, Hussein outlined that the 2.7 billion projects will provide water to 500,000 residents of Mavoko Township, Athi River, Mlolongo and Syokimau.
The commissioning comes ahead of President Ruto’s development tour to the Ukambani region to inspect ongoing government projects and launch new ones.
The project will boost the daily water supply by injecting an additional 12,000m3 of water supply, up from the current 3000m3 to 15000m3.
The multi-billion project will also see the number of beneficiaries increase with 20,000 new connections to households.
Mohamed added that the Project is in line with the government’s commitment to the provision of universal clean and safe water.
Ruto’s tour to Ukambani comes amid sharp criticism to his leadership from Wiper party leader and Azimio co-principal who is also the alleged area kingpin Kalonzo Musyoka
