Fears have engulfed the resident of Kisumu and its environs following reports that there may be an outbreak of waterborne diseases in the City.

This is due to use of raw water after Lake Victoria South Water Services Board (LVWSB) disconnected water supply to Kisumu Water and Sewerage Services Company (KIWASCO) for failing to pay water bills.

The city have experience acute shortage of water for the last one week forcing the residents to draw water from the lake and even buy from vendors.

The Chief Executive Officer, LVWSB, Eng.Moses Agumba said they were forced to cut down the plant intake after the water supplier refused to pay the debt.

Eng. Agumba said the board shut down the intake plant last weekend demanding Ksh.4.5 million.

However, KIWASCO Cooperate Officer, Georgory Okello said the motive was ill –advise saying they had made an agreement to settle the bills as required by the LVWSB.

END.
