Nairobi looks for new water to ease its growing thirst

12 Jun 2018, TRF

Nairobi's main water source can't keep up with demand, causing the government to seek ways of diversifying its water sources and eliminating reliance on water cartels. One solution is to rehabilitate nearby wetlands, dams and swamps both inside and outside the city, and pump the water to the capital, but encroachment and pollution have pushed some wetlands to the brink.
