Mwingi residents decry neglect as women walk up to 20 kilometres to fetch water

A section of Mwingi North residents in Mumoni sub county, have decried neglect by local leaders.

The residents, who had held a peaceful demonstration seeking developments in their area, said the area is the most remote with no electricity, poor road network, no hospitals and most importantly, water scarcity has hit them hard.
Jenifer Kanyaa, a local at Mukong’a area said they walk up to 20 kilometers in search of water at River Tana.

The women urged local leaders and especially Governor Kaluki Ngilu to intervene and solve their water menace.

Jenifer said they depended on a sunk borehole few meters from Mukong’a center but the pump developed hitches and has never been fixed, two years and still counting, the residents have been forced to fetch water 20 kilometers away after the nearby seasonal rivers dried up.

Musyimi Mukiti, another local pleaded with area leaders to jointly work on ensuring the area gets electricity.

Mukiti said school going children are disadvantaged as they cannot study online during this time when the country is fighting COVID-19 pandemic for the area has no electricity.
He also added that youths would have secured jobs like welding, operating cyber cafes among other opportunities if only the area had electricity.
Julius Mutuku, another youth said the roads have been neglected for long and have led to damaging of motorbikes and cars.

Kalonzo Kamunzi also decried poor roads which have discouraged most people to avoid transport business leaving locals to depend on travelling on lorries.
He also added that pregnant women have faced it rough as they have to be transported by means of motorcycles on the rough terrain and many have delivered along the way.
Patrick Mwandikwa, another youth decried poor health sector as locals cross to neighboring county, Embu to seek medical attention.

Mwandikwa also said that shortage of water is exposing women and children to dangers for Tana River is known for inhabiting crocodiles.
