KDF STEPS IN TO ALLEVIATE WATER SHORTAGE IN DROUGHT STRICKEN AREAS

The Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) troops working under Operation Amani Boni (OAB) on 7th October 2021 handed over two complete water pans to the residents of Basuba village, Lamu East to curb the ongoing severe drought.

While handing over the water pans constructed by the Corps of Engineers, Lieutenant Colonel Eric Lovega said that KDF is committed to ensure steady supply of clean water by constructing new water pans and renovating the existing ones.

The water pans are set to serve over 1000 homesteads in the nearby villages and the neighbouring Garissa and Tana River counties.

Elsewhere, KDF troops training in areas of Samburu and Isiolo counties on 8th October 2021 under the command of Deputy Brigade commander Col JK Maiyo supplied water to residents living in drought striken area of Lerata villages along Isiolo-Wamba road.
