Governor Irungu Kang’ata has said he is seeking to see legislation put in place to ensure Murang'a is compensated for supplying Nairobi County with water from Ndakaini dam.

 He said Ndakaini water has been a critical resource for the residents and they need to be compensated to support the distribution of the same.

“In consultation with the Assembly, there will be a policy that will guide compensation of our resource channeled to Nairobi and its environs,” said Kang’ata on Friday.

He announced plans to push for legislation through the county Assembly for payment of Murang’a water channeled to Nairobi.

In his first 100 days in office, the governor launched the automation of revenue collection and Kang’ata Care programme, an initiative between the county government and the National Health Insurance Fund (NHIF).

The programme has enrolled 21,000 households across the wards with 36 households per polling centre.
