Leaders in the county have urged the government to urgently address the water shortage occasioned by the drought that has left pastoralists at the risk of losing livestock.

 Narok West MP Patrick Ntutu, Naroosura/Maji Moto MCA Stephen Kudate and Senate aspirant Ledama ole Kina accused the national and county governments of not using the emergency fund to assist the residents.

 Speaking at Ntulele in Narok East, the leaders urged the government to send water bowsers to Mosiro where there is an acute water shortage to save residents from losing their livestock.
