In Nairobi, Kenya, almost half of the residents have trouble getting fresh water.
That is because they live in the large “informal settlements” in the capital city.
The Nairobi City Water & Sewerage Company (Nairobi Water) lacks a proper
setup for water service in these areas.
Further, it has not had a viable set-up for operating public water kiosks,
so Nairobi Water is looking for safe and sustainable solutions to these challenges.
For years, black market cartels have controlled water supply here.
Vendors are known to tamper with water lines in other parts of the city, fill water tanks,
and then sell that water in the slum areas for twice or up to many times
higher than the official consumer tariff.
In addition to the high cost, consumers can not trust the water quality.


Jack Jackson who is the video journalist from Grundfos and my team went to Africa
for this case.
