Nakuru GK prison at risk of cholera outbreak

04 July 2014, 12:46 Chepkwony Robert

Nakuru - A move by the Nakuru Water Services Company to disconnect water supply at the Nakuru GK prison owing to non-payment of bills puts the facility at risk of cholera outbreak.

James Sawe, the Nakuru GK prison’s officer in-charge said the prison has been without water for three consecutive days after NAWASCO disconnected water supply.

According to Sawe, the prison has a water bill debt accumulating to over KES 7 million over non payment for the last seven months,” said Sawe.

NAWASCO acting Managing Director, Engineer James Ng'ang’a says they will not reconnect water supply until the debt is fully settled.

The MD says the prison department has not tabled substantial ground for reconnection adding they are supposed to be paying on quarterly basis.

The prison serves over 2 000 inmates and according to the officer in-charge, water is life because they live in a confinement.

President Uhuru Kenyatta recently directed prisons to be under Interior and Coordination of National Government, which Sawe says placed them in a better position as far as payment of services is concerned.

“We had not been placed under any ministry and therefore payment of our services was hindered and complicated but with new directive, our issues are being sorted out,” Sawe said.
