Mathare residents hold protests over water shortage
Residents of Mabatini area in Mathare slums have Thursday morning staged a protest over water shortage.
The protest comes in the backdrop of low water supply during a fire incident that broke early today in the area.
The residents claim they have been facing immense hardships due to irregular water supply combined with low water pressure in Mathare and parts of Huruma for the past three weeks.
While on several occasions the water lines are damaged the residents are also putting blame on the ATM water points that were put in place in Mathare by Nairobi County Government.
