Residents of Cham gi Wadu Village in Rongo Sub-County, Migori County have benefited from a water project worth Kshs.8 million courtesy of Lake Basin Development Authority (LBDA).

The project was commissioned and handed over to the Community yesterday by the Managing Director of LBDA, Mr. Wycliffe Ochiaga.

Also present at the function at Cham gi Wadu Market were members of the National Assembly committee on regional development led by Vice Chair Mary wa Mauwa who is also the MP for Maragwa Constituency.

The committee members praised the project and said it would go a long way in solving water shortages persistently witnessed in the area.

MD Ochiaga said LBDA operates within 18 counties including Trans Nzoia, Bungoma, Homa bay, Kisumu and Migori and involves in drilling boreholes, protect water towers and campaign for good sanitation within and around Lake Victoria riparian Basin.

The authority was keen to continue with its efforts to supply clean and enough water to the communities around and within the Lake Basin, he added.

The official encouraged the benefiting communities to plant more trees and take care of the donor projects done within their areas by securing them from vandalism, adding that he was looking forward to continuous collaboration with members of parliament and county government to change the lives of the residents.

Embakasi South MP Julius Mawathe praised his Rongo counterpart Paul Abuor for drilling more than 14 boreholes in his Constituency with the help of the Constituency Development Funds (CDF).

He requested the MP to extend the project water lines connections to schools and far flung homes to benefit more residents.

“We are grateful to our MP and the LBDA for the water project and the many boreholes that have been sunk in this region,” said Lilian Awuor Otieno, a vegetable vendor at the Cham gi Wadu market.
