Achieving Enough Water In Ngarau Laikipia County

food security in laikipia can be achieved if the ministry of water development and other stalke holders come together and find a solution of finding way and means of getting water for irrigation. Note very well that ngarua in laikipia west we don't have rivers. We depend on water from dams ponds and water harvested from rain water. This water is not enough for human beings as well as livestocks. We need more and more water. This time the area is very dry you cannot get green foliage for livestock water catchment areas cannot produce enough water according to the high demand. Therfore wells come the organization called swim that have trained Ngarau residents on how to dig water dowsing from uderground. This method is good as each home will have enough water, I call upon the government to fund.
