MIKE SONKO is worse than KIDERO! See how he is losing billions in the city even as he brags that he is on top of things


Thursday October 11, 2018-The Nairobi County Assembly has revealed that Mike Sonko-led Government loses in excess of sh1 billion every year from the city water company.

The report by the Public Investments Committee disclosed that Nairobi County loses the money to water cartels through illegal connections and faulty meters.

According to the report, the Nairobi City Water and Sewerage Company, for instance, missed the huge earnings from the 181,363,932 cubic metres of water produced in the 2016/17 fiscal year.

The company was only paid for 112,787,608 cubic meters of water out of the 181,363,932 cubic metres of water released for consumption, collecting only Ksh5.1 billion in the year ending in 2017.

Nairobi Water Managing Director Nahashon Muguna confirmed the huge loses, saying the water unaccounted for was occasioned by leakages in connection pipes, overflowing of water at storage facilities, metering inaccuracies and inefficient billing systems.

“The company recognizes that high levels of unaccounted for water are detrimental to the financial viability of any water utility.”

“The loses reported fluctuated between 38 and 40 per cent in the last two years.”

“We are, however, working to put in place measures to reduce unaccounted for water,” said Muguna.
