According to the water company, Nairobians will have to bare with prolonged days without water as the rationing kicks in.

In a notice to customers, NCWSC stated: “Customers are urged to immediately contact the customer care team in regional offices should you not receive water in your allotted days of supply.

This comes barely a week after the meteorological department warned of food and water scarcity after the long rainy season failed.

No rains in the near future

Met Department director, Stella Aura, warned that the long rains period between March and May has fallen far below the long-term average for the period.

Based on the current conditions and the projected weather conditions, dry conditions are expected to dominate most parts of the country, leading to further deterioration of food security and water resource,” Ms Aura said.

Kenyans were asked to brace themselves for the scarcity of water resources for drinking, sanitation and industrial use as well as for power generation.

Acting Deputy Director of Kenya Meteorological Department Bernard Chanzu said there’s no immediate rainfall in the horizon this week and this could persist to the end of the season.
