Today I was at Katine HGM Primary School, Tala to commission Katine Community Borehole and launch the Machakos County Household Water Program.
Ksh2.5b has been allocated to the program which aims to have clean piped water for all the 250,000 households in the County. Already, we have sunk 100 new and rehabilitated 70 boreholes and dug 110 new dams across the county. Water from these boreholes has been piped to homes.
The promise I made to the people that they will not again be going to the rivers to fetch water but they will even have showers in their homes is now a reality. Water is a Right, not a Privilege.
Kusema na Kutenda. Maendeleo Chap Chap!
