Embu residents assured of health services despite water shortage
The Embu County Executive in Charge of Health, Pauline Njagi, has assured residents of Kithimu in Embu West Sub-county of continued steady health services, adding that the facility in the area will not be closed down due to lack of water.
Claims by the area MCA, Michael Njeru, who had expressed concerns that the Public Health had ordered the closure of all health facilities in the area because of water scarcity problems, claims that Ms Pauline has disputed strongly.
“Kithimu Health Center is connected to Kithimu-Kithegi water supply, however, this water is not available at all times and in mitigation, we have storage water tanks that we store water in them. At no time have services stopped because of lack of water,” explained the CEC Health.
Ms Njagi disclosed that plans are underway to have the health facility connected to the more reliable Embu Water and Sanitation Company (EWASCO).
