Nguluni residents in Machakos have urged Mutua led government to ensure that they have proper drainage. Pools of water, flooded roads and over-flowing storm water drainages characterised most parts of Machakos town as residents woke up to a heavy rain causing pools of water that mixed with mounds of garbage, turning the city into an eyesore.

Nguluni residents were forced to hop, skip and jump through the puddles of water while their daily operations were interrupted as most of them had their entrance blocked by the sudden “lakes” with flood-prone areas submerged in water.

“It’s irony that the same water causing havoc today will be most sought commodity in three months . This is crazy,” said Mutinda Wambua, a Nguluni resident.
