Three decentralized treatment facilities in three prisons are expected to be completed before the end of this financial year 2022/2023.

The sewer treatment project will improve on sanitation through waste water management once they are complete.

The three prisons are Shimo la Tewa prison in Mombasa, Kisumu Maximum and

Kibos prisons in Kisumu.

The Ministry of Interior and Coordination of National Government Chief Administrative Secretary Winnie Guchu had a tour visit of the Shimo la Tewa prisons to inspect the area where the decentralized treatment system is expected to be set.

She was accompanied by the Commissioner General of Prisons Brg (Rtd) John

Warioba and other officers on the 18th July 2022.

“There will be additional sanitation and the recycled water will be used in the prison farm and also benefit the community,” Madam Guchu said during the tour in an interview.

The Shgimo la Tewa sewer project is a partnership between Kenya Prisons Service (KPS), Mombasa Water Supply and Sanitation Company (MOWASSCO) and Water Sector Trust fund (WSTF).

On 19th July 2022, the Principal Secretary accompanied by the Commissioner General of Prisons Brg (Rtd) John Warioba and other officers toured the Kisumu Maximum Prison (Kodiaga) and Kibos Maximum Prison to access sewer project areas.

“We are aiming to have sewer systems that will work to curb environmental and health concerns,” the PS said during a tour of the two facilities.

The project at the Kisumu prisons is in partnership with KPS, WSTF and Kisumu Water and Sanitation Company (KIWASCO), while the one at Kibos is partnership between KPS, KIWASCO and Kibos Sugar Company.
