Inmates health at risk


Inmates at the Naivasha GK prison are starring at a health crisis after the facility’s sewerage system was cut off by the Naivasha Water and Sanitation Company.

Reports indicate that the facility has water bill arrears of over Ksh6 million .

Naivasha GK prison is the largest penal institution that is home to over 3,000 inmates.

The MD of the water company Nahashon Wahome claimed the prison was one of leading institutions that owed the company millions of shillings adding that the company had in the past engaged senior officers from prison headquarters over the pending bill before disconnecting the water supply.

“We have been very patient and even tried to engage the management at the headquarters which has failed to act,” he said.
