There is Something Fishy about Ndakaini Dam that Nairobians Need to be told

Ndakaini Dam

There is something fishy going down at Nadakaini Dam but the Nairobians have either refused to see or they know about it and just do not want to talk.

Most parts of Nairobi have not seen a drop of water in their taps for more than 14 months. The County Government of Nairobi kicked off the water rationing program under the reign of the then Governor Evans Kidero.

Since the starting of rationing, most people around Nairobi have been buying water from vendors at exorbitant prices ranging from 20 shillings per 20-liter jerrican to 100 shillings.

It is said that there are cartels within the city that are reaping billions of shillings from the residents of Nairobi through selling water to them.

When the rains came, the people of Nairobi were filled with hope. They knew that at long last, the Man Above had heard their prayer. They knew that water will be back in their taps. To the dismay of many, the taps became even drier.

80 percent of water in Nairobi comes from Ndakaini Dam. The rationing came into force when the water in the dam dropped to 30 percent. With the rains, it was expected that the water would rise to more than 50 percent and, hence, bring more life to Nairobians.

It has been raining for two months now across the country. The more it rains, the more water remains at 30 percent at Ndakaini Dam. Officials at Nairobi Water said that the main reason is that the dam lacks a reservoir and that the water that comes in cannot be stored.

They also blamed little rain in the in areas where the dam sources its water, something the meteorological department has disputed.

Questions:

What is happening at Ndakaini Dam?

Where is all the rainwater going?

If the dam doesn’t have a reservoir, what is being done?
