Stecol Corporation that is building the Malaba water supply and sanitation project has been ordered to complete the work by June.
Water and Sanitation Principal Secretary Joseph Irungu said the Sh306 million project should be completed within the agreed 20 months to serve the over 120,000 residents of Malaba town and its environs.
The PS spoke when he toured the project on Tuesday.
“I am here to track the implementation of the Malaba-Malakisi sanitation project as one of the flagship projects that should be delivered by June 2021,” he said.
“This project must be complete by June 2021. I have already instructed the contractor to make sure that by June next year this project is complete and ready for handover. It should also be ready for testing and commissioning.”
Malaba town has no sewerage system and the project’s completion is expected to improve the town’s rainwater flow problems as well
