The government of Hungary has offered to provide people living around the seven forks hydro-electricity producing dams with piped water.
The Hungarian ambassador Sandor Juhasz yesterday said his government will partner with the residents to install piped water for the residents who draw water from the crocodile infested waters. Juhasz said he is aware that many residents have lost their lives to crocodiles while trying to fetch water from the River Tana.
Speaking at the Embu Municipality’s mayor’s parlour when he paid a courtesy call on mayor Peter Muriithi, the ambassador said he is on a fact finding tour of Embu town and the county to find out what projects the locals would like his government to assist them carry out to improve their standards of living. Juhasz said apart from providing water for domestic use to the Mbeere people, his government will assist in irrigation projects.
