Naivasha - Visitors at the Mt Longonot National Park in Naivasha have been helping themselves in the bush after KWS failed to pay for water.
Toilets at the park were allegedly closed down three weeks ago over the water shortage, while alternative pit latrines also got filled up.
Health officials have already ordered a notice of closure to the Park management for ‘failing to provide sanitary accommodation to the satisfaction of the public health act’, The Star reports.
