Earlier in August, the Managing Director of Nairobi County Water and Sewerage Company, Nahashon Muguna, banned all foreign travel by employees due to a cash crunch at the state agency.

Muguna cancelled all non-essential activities, including training and out-of-office work, and cited poor revenue performance as the reason for the ban.

The company, which supplies water and sewerage services to millions of city residents, says it can no longer finance non-core expenses.
