Under the Executive order, the county government will also commence demolition of informal settlements erected on the wetlands and riparian areas as stipulated in the Environmental Management and Coordination Act of 1999, Laws of Kenya.

The move is aimed at conserving and protecting water towers and riparian land. Regrettably, our rivers have dried posing a great risk to the current and future generation.

Springs across the country are also drying up. Boreholes drilled by my administration are running out of water. I have held discussions with Nyamira County Governor John Nyagarama and legislators from the region over the issues as it needs a concerted approach.

I have directed the head of service, the department of administration which comprises of sub county and ward administrators, the department of water and environment to work hand in hand with the national government through the County Commissioner to execute the plan with three months.
