Water Scarcity in Wamunyu Ward,Machakos County resolved

By Violet Mbiti

I witnessed the perennial water shortage affecting the residents of Wamunyu Ward, Mwala Constituency, Machakos County . This is my rural home and I decided to take action in 2014. I approached the County Government of Machakos and made a funding pitch on why we need a dam constructed that will create jobs for youth via agribusiness as well as sale of water at subsidized prices that will benefit Wamunyu on Time CBO and residents . I therefore submitted a proposal and later i was summoned by community elders to share with them about this project. Unfortunately Politics interfered with the commencent of the project. We were greatly affected..I therefore applied to Friedrich Ebert Stiftung Political Leadership and Governance Program to learn where i was going wrong. With the knowledge attained i regained my strength and focus. I lobbied the County Government and utilized my basic advocacy efforts to revive the project.Its now June 2018. The project is now revived, on course and will be completed in two months time. Am overjoyed knowing that my dream has come to pass. The dam will provide water for residents of Wamunyu Market, Kambiti, Mwasua and Mbaikini.There will be a treatment plant as well as pumping of water to the households. It was a pleasure visiting the site with Member County of Assembly Wamunyu Ward Hon Musyoka. When he was elected he ensured this is the first project he will embark on. Asante Mheshimiwa.. Masisya Dam is now on course
