Devolution ministry is now leading talks between Nairobi Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko and Murang’a Governor Mwangi wa Iria over Ndakaini dam water tussle that has seen the two county bosses engage in war of words and supremacy.
In an interview with Ghetto Radio News Devolution Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa stated that they are in serious talks to end the water wars as was directed by president Uhuru Kenyatta.
According to Wamalwa the water temperatures between Nairobi county government and Muranga is cooling down and soon a solution will be reached.
’’My ministry is engaging the two governors but what we must insist is that water is a natural resource and is a commodity belonging to every Kenyans.’’ He added.
Last week President Uhuru Kenyatta urged Wa Iria to stop the water politics and instead focus on amicable way to address the water scarcity in the region.
Governor Wa iria and the county assembly of Murang’a demand that 25% of revenue of Ndakaini dam water a move that has been opposed vehemently by governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko.
