Musenke is among the driest and thirst part of Kajiado county where water is a major problem.
Among the first projects to be done by the county government was the Ewaso Nyiro – Musenke water pipeline project in 2014 to quench the thirst of the residents who used to travel long distances to reach the water catchment areas
The water project will supply water to Musenke primary school, Musenke dispensary and the market place.
Kajiado governor together with area MCA Peter Pariken toured the area to access the water project.
The Governor speaking to the residents said, “This project is instrumental in supporting the people of musenke who for a long time have stayed without water and in 2014 we did this project and it has made a big impact simply because water has now been piped to the school, market and dispensary.”
Ntoyian ole Kotikash the chairman of the water project said the project has been of help.
He added that there have been challenges at the project due to the flooding of Ewaso -Nyiro River due to rains in the highlands affecting water supply to the borehole due to siltation.
The governor also gave out two drums of diesel to be used to pump water to the community.
