Residents of Kataboi location in Turkana North will benefit from free access to water, after Tullow Kenya handed to them Sh18 million project...The water project consists of a 130m deep, yielding 45,000 cubic liters of water per hour, a solar powered submersible pump borehole and a 20,000 litre storage tank. It is expected to benefit over 5,000 residents…Tullow Kenya Country Manager Martin Mbogo said the project suits the company’s broader commitment of investing in social projects cutting across health, education, alternative livelihoods and capacity building. “During our previous engagements with the local community, poor access to safe drinking water was identified as a challenge for the community,” said Mr Mbogo. “Tullow is therefore proud that through a working partnership with the local community, the area leadership as well as both the national and county governments, we have worked together to solve this challenge.”
