Water poisoning rumours leave town 'thirsty'

05 June 2014, 11:44 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - Residents of Nyeri town on Wednesday went without taking tap water following rumours that water had been poisoned.
This came after people received short messages through mobile phones cautioning them against taking water supplied by Nyeri Water and Sewerage Company (NYEWASCO) because strangers had been spotted at the treatment centre.
Residents were only buying bottled water to quench their thirst.
However, NYEWASCO Managing Director, Joseph Nguiguti on Thursday dispelled the rumours saying that water circulated by the company was safe for drinking and people should dismiss the reports.
“We urge all of us to dispel this unwarranted rumour on poisoning as it is made by enemies of peace and development,” said the MD.
While addressing press in his office, Nguiguti assured consumers and general public that its water was safe for drinking.
“Tests have been done on all parameters necessary and a re-confirmation made that water is as good as has always been,” he said.
He emphasized that the company’s major water tanks are under 24-hour-security watch.
The rumours started around 1pm Wednesday with residents flocking the NYEWASCO offices to enquire about the water poisoning claim.
Earlier in the day, similar rumours spread around Embu County.
