More than 5000 residents of Seretunin, including Moi Teachers Training College (TTC) in Baringo, will in the next one month benefit from improved access to clean and reliable water once a borehole being constructed by the county government is completed.
Commissioning the construction of the borehole sited at Seretunin Market Centre on Monday, Deputy Governor (DG), Jacob Chepkwony said the facility is going to relieve the communities living in the water-scarce area the agony of walking a long distance to fetch water for domestic use and livestock.
The DG said that the borehole implemented through the department of water will serve among other learning institutions such as Seretunin Mixed Day Secondary School, Kapkawa Secondary School, and Seretunin Youth Polytechnic.
“We are grateful to the county government led by Stanley Kiptis for considering drilling the borehole here in Seretunin. It is a well-done job and I hope the project will go a long way in solving the perennial water problem here in Seretunin and also at our biggest learning institution, Moi TTC, Baringo,” he said.
