Kajiado North residents participate in sewer construction forum

Residents of Kajiado North sub-county have taken part in a public participation forum on the upcoming sewerage system project to be implemented by the Tana Athi Water Services Board.

The forum held in Ngong town provided residents with the opportunity to highlight their opinions on the project ahead of its implementation.

According to Samuel Kimutai, an urban planner working on the sewerage system project, the project is currently in the design stage.

“The timeline for the design stage is two years. When we are done with the public participation forum, we are going to improve the design of the project,” Kimutai said.

In conclusion the public participation and sensitization forums, the design for the sewerage system will be completed and tendered by the government for commencement of implementation on the construction work.

President William Ruto in 2022 promised residents of Ongata Rongai, Kiserian, and Ngong towns in Kajiado North Sub County that he would construct a sewerage system for them.

He had told the residents during a tour of the area that construction plans were in the pipeline to facilitate easier waste disposal from the mentioned areas.

“I know that Rongai residents have experienced a shortage of water and there has not been a sewerage system to ensure proper hygiene,” Ruto noted, adding that the construction of a sewer line would upgrade the satellite towns of the County and make them more conducive for living.
