Controversy over the administration of water companies in Murang’a deepened Thursday after the managing director of one of the County's water firms was denied access to his office.

Eng Daniel Ng'ang'a, the MD of Murang'a Water and Sewerage Company (Muwasco), found that the County Executive for Water - Mr Paul Macharia - had occupied his office and changed the locks to doors despite a court order stopping his ejection.

The official, who was last month on the spot over a leaked conversation between him and Governor Mwangi wa Iria, found that his designated vehicle had also been clamped and its tyres deflated.

"I cannot access my office including my personal items. This raid is a contempt of court and all we want is a procedural process by the county government. We cannot allow jungle rule in water affairs," he said today.
