Boreholes to end water shortage in Nairobi

Government addresses water shortage in Nairobi

The government has started drilling boreholes in Nairobi to address water shortage in the city.
A total of 40 boreholes are expected to be drilled within the next two weeks at a cost of KES 200 million, Water and Irrigation Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa said on Tuesday.
Nairobi has been relying on water from Ndakaini dam, Kikuyu springs and Sasumua dam all of which are in Central Kenya, The Standard reports.
The situation has been made worse by the ongoing drought, with reports indicating that water at Ndakaini dam is already below 25 percent.
