Nairobi City Water and Sewerage Company (NCWSC) has said that parts of Eastlands will be without water this coming weekend.

The company said the interruption of water supply will begin on Friday, January 22, 2016 at 6am to Saturday, January 23, 2016 at 6pm.

Areas to be affected include, Kariobangi South  and North, Buruburu estate phase one to five, Umoja I and II, Donholm, Tassia, Nyayo, Industrial Area and Avenue Park I and II.

Also to be affected will be parts of Thika road, Mathare 4 Area and Survey.

“While all efforts will be made to minimize the effects of the supply interruption, we request all consumers in the affected areas to use water sparingly during the period of interruption,” the statement added.
