Kajiado county residents have called upon the county government to intervene and help them find a permanent solution to the water shortage being experienced as a result of the ongoing drought.
The residents want the government to drill more boreholes in the area.
They pointed out that the situation is so bad that they have been forced to dig into their pockets to buy a 20 litre jerry can of water at Ksh30.
Ilbissil water vendor Moses Maina said the situation is getting worse since many boreholes are now drying up.
“Situation is worsened by prolonged drought owing to rain failure for the last over five months.” Maina said in anguish.
