The Mombasa County government has been asked to construct dams for storage of rain water.   

Kenya Red Cross (KRC) coast region manager Hassan Musa has sent a passionate appeal to six county governments to make maximum use of the rains through storage of water.

He defended his appeal saying the water will be used when the rainy season ends.

“Let’s make use of the rains which have pounded the region through storage of water for future use,” he pointed out.

Musa added it’s important to store the water from the rains instead of shedding crocodile tears when the rains disappear.

He was speaking during a bonding session with journalists from over 10 media houses held at the KRC Mombasa offices in Mombasa county.

He pointed out the current rains in the coast region have not caused havoc.

“The rains currently experienced in the coast region have not caused havoc compared to previous years,” he added.
