An image has surfaced online of a supposed “clean water” bowser seemingly fetching dirty water from what looks like a sewer.The bowser is seen atop a hill with pipes flowing down to the sewer which is then sold to unsuspecting clients who are exposed to dangerous diseases.
Others claim that the truck was refilling for a construction project but no one can vouch that they will disinfect it once they are done with the project.
Although the exact location of where the images were taken is unclear, a section of online users have narrowed it down to either Kisumu or Nairobi as the country is undergoing persistent water shortage, traders who sell water using bowsers are making a killing and many are taking advantage of the situation and trying to cut corners.
The images have brought displeasure among Kenyans online, with some asking the government to take charge and ensure prosecution of the responsible individuals.
