Mathare Residents Decry Low Water Pressure Want The Matter Addressed
Mathare North residents are now calling on Nairobi City Water and Sewage Company to look into the low water pressure in the area saying it has become another menace.
According to Elijah Okuto a community mobilizer in the area , low pressure has been caused by a huge storey building that has allegedly been erected without proper planning.
‘‘We have about 80% storey buildings in this area but what is surprising is that there is no pressure to push water beyond the ground floor’’ He said.
They are now calling on Nairobi City Water and Company to swing into action and install new water systems in the area to accommodate the growing population.
He further called on the company to rid out water cartels and restore normal water supply in area.
‘‘The area is still invaded by water cartels who collaborate with car wash owners and other businessmen to deny residents water but instead sell it.’’ He added.
