Hope for troubled water company as new directors set to be appointed
Stakeholders have appointed a five-man committee to oversee fresh hiring in the troubled Kyeni Water and Sanitation Company.

The five will receive and vet applications for board of directors to revive the water company formed in 1960 in Runyenjes Constituency, and which now suffers a management crisis.

Irrigation CEC Richard Mbogo cautioned against politicising of the company's running.

“We are confident that the new directors will end the management hurdles and streamline operations,” he said at a stakeholders meeting.

Others who attended the meeting included Embu Assembly Water and Irrigation Committee Chairman Nathan Mwari, Deputy Speaker Steve Simba, Assembly Clerk Jim Kauma and Assembly Budget Committee Chairman Harrison Mwaluko.

They said the county government had set aside Sh25 million for the revival of the water firm.

Kyeni North MCA Patrick Mukavi threatened to block Government funding to the company if it recycled any of its former directors.
