Marsabit County Residents are an angry lot and their cause of anger should be a cause of concern to their leaders who have proven to careless about their plight and challenges.
In Marsabit, trying to find Clean Water is like trying to Make a Cow lay eggs.
The residents took issue with their leadership when during a visit by the local leaders they “served” them bottled muddy water.
The leaders had toured Karare area to urge the locals to support the establishment of a municipality.
But the locals had other ideas as they presented the bottles of contaminated water to drive the point home; they are in dire need of water and not a municipality.
“Our problem is water, not a municipality,” the residents told the visiting delegation.
This comes barely a month after the “mysterious” deaths of more than 115 camels. They perished after drinking water from an abandoned well in Marsabit.
A few days after the incident, another herd of 56 sheep and goats died in similar circumstances.
