Kenyans are wondering why every part of the country is flooded except dams, which should ideally be full of reserve waters right now.

The concerns come in the wake of the heavy rains across the country for two months now that have led to flooding.

Nairobi Water and Sewerage Company last week shocked Nairobi MCAs by admitting that water rationing in the city will continue until it rains heavily in Ndakaini dam’s catchment areas of Aberdares, Kikuyu and Mount Kenya.

Nairobians had hoped the water levels at Ndakaini dam will increase with the current rains and end the perennial water shortages.

Some online users have suggested that the construction of new dams be expedited to ensure all the rain water is harvested for use in the city.
