Kisumu hit by theft of water meters

Several people have been arrested in an operation targeting water meter vandals.

Kisumu Water and Sewerage Company (Kiwasco) officials and police Friday embarked on a crackdown in Nyalenda, Migosi and Car Wash estates where they recovered 15 meters that had been stolen from customers.

Kiwasco Managing Director Thomas Odongo said the suspect arrested yesterday was in custody at the Kondele Police Station.

He noted that the vandals had cost the company over Sh700,000 in lost revenue, adding that this loss and the water left flowing from broken meters, accounted for 33 per cent.
