Kitui Senator tours troubled Usueni-Wikithuki irrigation project

Sen. Enoch Kiio Wambua today visited the Usueni/Wikithuki National Irrigation Board project that has been gripped by a series of problems which have forced farmers to abandon their plots at the Irrigation Scheme located in Tseikuru, Kitui county.

Farmers complained about the unreliable supply of electricity used to pump water from the river Tana into the plots to be among other issues that have seen crop failure in the scheme that was commissioned in 2011.
