Nandi County leadership led by their Governor Stephen Sang has appealed to President William Ruto’s administration to consider implementing the Multi Billion shillings Keben water project in Nandi which has stalled for years.
Speaking to Journalists in Kapsabet, Sang cited that the Keben water Multi Billion shillings project in Nandi Hills was approved seven years ago and is one of the biggest projects for Nandi but has stalled for long due to political disputes in the Jubilee government after the 2017 General Elections.
The shs 7.8B project was expected to mitigate shortage of clean water in the County and was to benefit over 200,000 households across Nandi hills town and its environs.
They lamented that the region has suffered frequent water shortages for a very long time due to political differences revealing that the former Jubilee government had ordered the Ministry of Water and Irrigation to have the water project (Keben springs) established in Nandi East in a bid to supply water for domestic use and irrigation purposes but to date the project has not reached its completion thus appealed to the current government to chip in and assist in the completion of the project.
They asked the President to make sure that all projects started in Nandi which stalled due to divisive politics during the former regime are completed so as to benefit residents.
