Murang’a county governor Mwangi Wa Iria

A proposal to levy water sourced from Murang’a County and consumed in Nairobi County has taken a new twist after Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko traded barbs with his Murang’a counterpart Mwangi Wa Iria.

The Nairobi warned Mr Wa Iria that if he continue demanding for a levy, he will reiterate by demolishing his houses which he claimed have been built on a road reserve.

Speaking Thursday during the official opening of Nairobi ASK Show attended by President Uhuru Kenyatta, Mr Sonko said he has the Ndakaini Dam tittle deed and that Murang’a leaders have no right to demand for a share of the revenue from the water consumed by city residents.

“Wa Iria should not joke with us. I will deal with him if he touches Ndakaini dam. We will act on the building he has,” Mr Sonko said in a speech on Thursday.

He added that Murang’a leaders have no right to demand for anything from the Ndakaini water, saying it comes from Nyandarua and Nyeri counties and is only stored at Ndakaini.
