Water level at Masinga Dam still low despite the ongoing rains

Water level at Masinga Dam is still low despite the ongoing heavy rains in many parts of the country, raising fears that the hydro-power producer could be shut down.

Energy Cabinet Secretary Charles Keter said the water in the dam was at the lowest level and that the situation could worsen if it did not rain in the region.

There has been no rain in the lower parts of Mount Kenya, whose key rivers flow into the dam.
