Suba South Water Project Launched at Sh. 60 million

Posted on : Thursday , 28th March 2024

After a water project was implemented that aims to service over 24,000 residents, the people of Suba South are immensely happy.


The non-governmental organization World Vision carried out the project using funding provided by the Japanese government, which totaled Sh. 60 million.


The project, according to Suba South Member of Parliament Caroli Omondi, is crucial to the battle against communicable diseases in isolated communities.


Starting at the towns of Uterere and Kisegi and proceeding to Kiwa Island, the project was being carried out in three stages.


To provide communities with clean water, the proposal calls for building water treatment facilities, water tanks, and kiosks.


Today at the Uterere Trading Center, the project was officially launched by local officials and citizens under the direction of Sebastian Okiring, Suba Deputy County Commissioner, and legislator for Suba South.


According to Omondi, the project will spare locals from catching diseases spread by water and shorten their arduous walks in search of water.


According to Omondi, "clean water consumption is vital for good health, which will translate into higher economic growth."


"People will save the many hours they spend searching for water and use that money for other economic endeavors," stated Omondi.


The lawmaker praised the collaboration between World Vision, the government of Kenya, and the government of Japan for making the initiative possible.


He mentioned that building restrooms for the neighborhood's schools and beaches was another aspect of the proposal.


"It is impressive that the development partners will improve sanitation at Uterere, Kisegi, and Kiwa primary schools by building toilets in addition to providing water," Omondi remarked.


Okiring gave the stakeholders the assurance that there would be strict security for the project.


He urged locals to take ownership of the initiative.


"I want locals to take ownership of this initiative. The whole weight of the law will be used on anyone who tries to damage any of the infrastructure used on this project, according to Okiring.


By May, the Uterere project's first phase will be finished. Before phase three at Kiwa Island, phase two will begin at Kisegi.
