Kenya: Kengen Starts Sh65 Million Tana Water Project

Kengen has started a Sh65 million piped water project to curb killing of residents by crocodiles in its hydroelectricity dams. The project which will cover the Seven Forks hydro dams on Tana River, in Eastern province is part of the company's corporate social responsibility.

The company's operations manager Francis Kawa said his organisation is concerned by the killings. "Because the area accommodating the dams is semi arid residents are forced to go to the dams to draw water," said Kawa. "Several of them have been killed by crocodiles especially on the Kiambere hydro water dam."
