Kenya's current water coverage by regulated utilities stands at 60 per cent, Water Service Regulatory Board (Wasreb) chairman Simon Gicharu has said.

Speaking during a board of directors orientation and induction seminar at the Sarova Whitesands Beach Resort, Mombasa, Dr Gicharu said Kenya's Vision 2030 goal for water is to achieve universal access by 2030.

"2030 is just eight years away and we are keen to achieve the target. The government has set 2027 as the target," Gicharu said.
