The Ministry of Water has formed a task force that will look into why Ndakaini dam water levels are still low despite of the heavy rains.
Speaking in Murang’a county, Principal Secretary for Water Joseph Irungu said that the team will hand in their findings in a record 60 days.
The team, led by Engineer Samuel Halima will have representatives from the water Ministry, Nairobi and Muranga Counties, Athi Water and Sewerage Company, Nairobi City Water and Sewerage Company among other stakeholders.
The water levels at Nairobi County’s main water reservoir have dropped by 30% and Kenyans have been sensing malice.
Experts have said that the diabolical force of water cartels have apparently ordered for opening of eight water gates in Ndakaini Dam, to divert water elsewhere. These gates have apparently never been opened, unless the dam’s capacity is to the brim and risky.
Here are some sentiments from Kenyans:
Now we have a task force to look why rivers are shying away from Ndakaini.

So the Water PA has formed a task force to probe Ndakaini dam water levels mystery after heavy rains. Is it money or time that we have in plenty that our country loves wasting?
