New Dawn for Tyaa Residents as Masukanioni Water Project is Commissioned

After years of trekking for kilometers in search of water, Tyaa residents can finally breathe a sigh of relief with the inauguration of the Masukanioni Water Project.

The initiative, located in the water-scarce Mumoni Ward in Mwingi North Sub-County, is a collaborative effort between the County Government and the World Bank through the Kitui County Emergency Locust Response Project (ELRP).

This comprehensive project includes the installation of solar panels and water pumps at the borehole, two 10,000-liter storage tanks, a water kiosk, and a cattle trough. It is anticipated to benefit over 1,500 households, 7,500 cattle, and 15,000 goats in the area.

During the handover ceremony to the community, Kitui Minister for Agriculture and Livestock, Dr. Stephen Kimwele, emphasized Governor Dr. Julius Malombe’s commitment to partnering with development agencies to tackle food and water challenges in Kitui.

Dr. Kimwele highlighted the transformative impact of the project, noting that Masukanioni residents will no longer endure long treks or hours spent searching for water, both for domestic use and their animals.

Mr. Henry Murage, the coordinator of the County Emergency Locust Response project, reiterated the agency’s dedication to collaborating with the community on life-changing initiatives.

The event was graced by various government officials, including Kitui Director for Water Eng. Kennedy Mutati, KIMWASCO MD Eng. Paul Kinuba, area Chief Patrick Nzoka, and Acting Mumoni Ward Administrator Titus Musya, among others, showcasing the collective effort of both County and National Government officers in ensuring the success of the project.
