Sources are reporting widespread financial mismanagement and looting at Eldoret Water and Sanitation Company (Eldowas), with questions about oversight and accountability.

Stakeholders are calling for urgent intervention by EACC and government auditors.

Reports indicate that Eldowas offers exorbitant board sitting allowances, with some session allowances exceeding the combined monthly salaries of three field employees.

To maximize personal gain, greedy board members reportedly hold three to five meetings, each accruing these hefty allowances.

This resource abuse is happening under the watchful eye of Governor Jonathan Bii.

The county head is now at the bottom of the rankings due to his contribution to the financial decline of what was once the nation's top water company.

Eldowas' employment is characterized by favoritism and nepotism. Competent candidates lose out to family members and unqualified personnel.

This culture of corruption extends to tender processes, where a select few close to the top management receive contracts.

This only further depletes the company's resources and illustrates why, despite the region's advantageous high altitude and forest cover, Uasin Gishu residents currently face high water rates.

Eldowas' mismanagement has led to poor service delivery. A source sent us this video of sewage running freely due to neglected infrastructure maintenance.

Harsh repercussions await employees who attempt to expose these issues.

Whistleblowers frequently receive suspension letters, which frequently result in their dismissal, effectively silencing dissent and upholding the status quo.

It's rather interesting how local Members of Parliament and other political leaders have remained conspicuously silent on these issues.

Residents have already assumed their complicity and fear of reprisal from powerful stakeholders in the water sector.

The situation at Eldowas requires immediate investigation and intervention by the EACC and government auditors, because the only way to uncover the full extent of this corruption is through a comprehensive audit of board activities, employment practices, and tender awards.
