120 handwashing units donated by Base are now in place for residents of Kwale

Kwale-based Australian mining firm Base Titanium hand washing units have now been erected from Likoni sub-county of Mombasa to the Kenya-Tanzania border at Horohoro in Lunga-Lunga sub-county of Kwale.
Base titanium community relations manager Pius Kassim said over the past week they were in Vanga, Lunga-Lunga and Mwereni wards in Kwale where they set up more hand washing units to help fight the spread of covid-19.
He said in the border town of Vanga, two bulk water units were set up to serve more than 100 local fishermen, while in Lunga Lunga town the two hand washing units will serve more than 200 market traders and boda boda riders.
“At the Kenya-Tanzania border post we have also set up a hand washing unit at Jua kali trading centre to serve truck drivers and boda boda operators to help them sanitize their hands with soap and water,” he said.
He said on Friday a total of 120 hand washing units donated by Base are now in place for residents of Kwale and Likoni sub-county to adopt hand washing practices which is seen as one of the key approach to help stop spread of the disease.
Meanwhile, Kwale Governor Salim Mvurya and his deputy Fatuma Achani inspected the ongoing works at the Bububu Springs Water Project in Tsimba Golini ward, Matuga Sub County.
Mvurya said his administration is setting up a water treatment plant at the Bububu Springs that will see water supplied to over 1,000 households.
The governor and his deputy were accompanied by the County Executive Committee Member for Water Services Martin Kuya Anyange and his Chief Officer Musyoki Munyao.
