With a population of 50 million, 32 percent of Kenyans rely on unimproved water sources, such as ponds, shallow wells and rivers, while 48 percent of Kenyans lack access to basic sanitation solutions.
These challenges are especially evident in rural areas and urban slums where people are often unable to connect to piped water infrastructure.
Kenyans reacted with shock to the dire state of public sanitation in Nairobi County after a video that has since gone viral surfaced capturing a hawker fetching sewage and later distributing it as clean water at a Nairobi estate.
The video seen by Kenya Leo showed a man using a jerrican to fetch water at a sewage plant in Nairobi.
The footage captures the same man, believed to be hawking clean water, loading the water jerricans onto a handcart.
According to the witness who filmed the video, the incident occurred at Umoja Three estate and the water was meant for sale as clean water to area residents.
The matter was brought to the attention of the relevant authorities who promised that it would be looked into.
Watch the video below.
