Here is what UHURU said about the water wars of Ndakaini Dam in Murang’a - Is he siding with MIKE SONKO or MWANGI wa WAIRIA? LOOK

Saturday October 6, 2018 - President Uhuru Kenyatta has asked Murang’a Governor, Mwangi wa Iria, and his Nairobi counterpart, Mike Sonko, to resolve the water wars facing Ndakaini Dam.

Muranga leaders led by Wairia have been threatening to cut water supply to Nairobi if the Nairobi County fails to remit 25 per cent of revenue collected in Nairobi from the water supplied from the dam. 

However, in a tough response on Thursday, Mike Sonko told Murang'a leaders to stop threatening to cut water supply from Ndakaini Dam.

He said the County acquired the dam's 1,200 acres in 1988 and locals were compensated.

Following the tug of war, Uhuru asked the two leaders on Saturday to find a solution to the row on Ndakaini water.

Uhuru said no one should politicize the sharing of natural resources.

"Naomba viongozi wote, tuwache hii siasa ya maji. Maji ni kipeo kutoka kwa mwenyezi mungu kwa watu wake...," Uhuru said

(I beg all the leaders, stop politicising the issue of water. Water comes from God).

Uhuru asked all leaders to come together so us to learn on how to share the resources.

"Tunafaa tuje pamoja ili tujue vile tutaitumia hii maji kwa manufaa ya watu wa Kenya... hi rasilimali ni yetu wote," he said
