The Nairobi County Government has assured residents that water will be on their taps Friday morning after the Nairobi Water and Sewerage Company completed repairs six hours ahead of the planned time.

A public notice by the the water company issued on Tuesday had warned residents to expect an interruption in water supply to allow the repair of a broken valve.

The Water and Environment County Executive Peter Kimori said the work was completed and the water would need at least six hours to pump.


“We need six hours to pump the water before the residents receive it in their homes, pressure will be low but by 6am we will have water,” he said.

He added that the company had removed silt accumulated at the Ngethu water reservoir during the rainy season.

More than 1.5 million Nairobi residents were affected including areas in Eastlands, city centre and the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.
