Kenya: Junda Water Project to Benefit 25,000

More than 25,000 people at Junda in Vikwatani, Kisauni district will benefit from a fresh water project funded by the Water Services Trust Fund. The WSTF will partner with Mombasa Water Company in funding the project.

While commissioning the project, Mombasa Deputy Governor Hazel Katana said everyone is entitled to clean and fresh water. She commended Mombasa Water for ensuring residents have access to clean water. Some 53,000 of residents in Junda access water from boreholes, air valves and wash outs.

In the project funded by WSTF, water lines have been extended to 3.2KM and four water kiosks constructed to cater for the population in the area. The project had began in June 2013 and will end in March 2014.
