Speaking this morning to Paulin Murungi a resident of Ndaragi 1 village in Ndaragi Parish Kisukuma Sub County says the area is totally lacking water in that most of them go for water in the morning but comes back in the evening due to congestion and a long lining of jerrycans at the bore hole.


Murungi explains that Ndaragi one Village has only one borehole and a shallow well whereby the bore hole do always get dry after fetching one to two jerrycans hence forcing them to stay at the water source waiting for water for long period.


She said most of women and children go for water in morning and come back home in the evening after having had many quarrels amongst themselves at the bore hole.
