The Erima Wildlife settlement is home to over 2, 000 people and is divided into three blocks known as Zones.
Access to water is a daily struggle and people have lived without water supply for almost two decades.
Everyday residents from Zones 2 and 3 carry loads of containers to Zone 1, which is located near Erima’s new local school, to fetch water.
Some even travel to Gordon’s Market to get water and transport it back to their houses.
A cheque of K200, 000 from the District Services Improvement Program was presented to Eda Ranu’s Commercial Services General Manager, Paul Gore, to signify the launch of the water project.
The local MP encouraged his people to take ownership of the services that are provided to them and said they must understand that those services must be paid for.
It was a joyous moment for the community and they responded with dancing, singing and cheering.
Eda Ranu did not say how soon the work will begin, but promised the people that work will commence once a technical team is identified.
