Siaya Bondo Water and Sanitation Company (SIBO) Managing Director Julius Nyadiango has attributed lack of water in the county to meter vandalism.
Nyadiango said Siaya and Bondo towns have suffered the consequences of lack of water for a period of eight months.
“The problem has disrupted normal services in the entire Siaya County, especially in major institutions in both Siaya and Bondo towns,” Nyadiango said.
He said over 1,000 meters have been stolen in the last eight months with no arrest made despite the numerous reports to the police.
“At the moment, we have identified the culprits’ hide-out behind Siaya town at Mbaga forest and investigations are underway to unearth the whole scandal,” he said.
He called on the Siaya and Bondo residents to report such cases to police in a bid to curb water shortage.
“This will help in averting the looming revenue collection problem,” the MD said.
Commercial manager Isaiah Wesonga says metal meters are targeted for sale to scrap dealers.
