The mystery behind the low water levels in Ndakaini dam is far from being unearthed and the government is now rushing to intervene and rescue the situation.
Ps water Joshua Irung has formed a taskforce geared in finding the mysteries facing the dam and its management and possible remmedies.
“I am giving the taskforce 2 months to invstigate and come up with claer reasons on managament of Ndakaini dam.’’ Addded Irungu.
The dam is currently 48% water despite heavy downpour being witnessed in the whole country, putting Nairobi in another risk should the rain stop soon.
Yesterday we toured the dam and sources of its streams at Aberdare ranges and all is well but the question of water not reaching the dam still remain unanswered.
The managing director Nairobi Water and Sewerage Company Nahashon Muguna maintains that the rationing will only stop by 2026 due to low water supply from Ndakaini and Thika dam.
The MD further indicated that they are exepecting the water level to rise at 68% in the next 20 days.
Meanwhile Muranga residents led by Gatanga member of parliament Nduati Ngugi insist that the 10% of Ndakaini water be left in the county for their use and that they will ensure that is done an assurance that raises question of sabbotage.
“We cant see our resources being enjoyed by another county as our people perish and therefore demand 10 % be diverted immediately for people of Gatanga and entire Muranga county,’’said Nduati.
