President Ruto's declaration of commitment to resolve the problems blocking the progress of the Arror, Kimwarer and Itare dams in the North Rift Valley of Kenya is a much-awaited ray of hope for residents of this arid region. As the rain clouds continue to gather on the horizon, Kenyans hope the efforts taken by the government to resume construction of these much-needed water supply sources will pay off in due course.
The green light for construction of the dams is a strong signal that President Ruto and his government are fully cognizant of the hardships caused by water scarcity in this part of the country, and that all measures are being taken to see the project come to fruition. As President Mattarella of Italy pledged his country's support in removing legal hurdles, the speedy commencement of the project is no longer far-fetched.
On the heels of these positive developments, there is an unprecedented buzz among the local populace. This excitement must not be dampened; the government and citizens must come together to collaborate on this development mission. All challenges, be they of financial or legal nature, must be resolved in good faith so as to revive the Arror and Kimwarer projects and bring relief to Kenyans in the North Rift Valley.
