Hamjambo mabibi na mabwana. Good afternoon and thank you for inviting me to launch this important project with you. Today we celebrate another achievement that will bring water and sanitation to more Kenyans, and that is truly something to celebrate.
U.S. Ambassador to Kenya Robert F. Godec joined Governor of Embu County, Nyaga Wambora, to launch a new water distribution system in Embu County. The new Embu Water and Sewerage Company (EWASCO) system will expand water access to an additional 6,000 households and more than 100 schools, clinics, and community buildings in Mbeer and surrounding low-income communities of Embu County. The system also serves as a model for how to transform Kenya’s water and sanitation sector with private financing.
