Tseikuru is thirsty. So thirsty such that a layman wakes up at 3am to start a journey to the river. So thirsty indeed.

Ironically, the furthest point in Tseikuru subcounty stands at 47km from the permanent source of water: Tana River.

It puzzles me why this particular subcounty still lives in the 19th century because some responsibility has been left to the devil.

Any private investor has the ability to handle this menace and give billed water to Tseikuru sub county.

The community has the ability to pay for water bills for the water supplied. I wish our cry reached the presidency.


For the little I have toured this country, I have seen mighty government projects. I have seen a Sh450Million plant used to run salty ocean water to consumable fresh water in Lamu County.

I have seen Mzima Springs in Taita Taveta County giving fresh water to Mombasa County which lies 173km from Taita hills.

I have seen a road contractor drilling boreholes every 50km of the road as a compulsory exercise and requirement to win a road contract in Balambala Garissa County and many more.

If all these projects came to fruition, it is possible to provide clean water to Tseikuru residents.
