River catchment area, Sondu Basin.

Zachary Arap Samoei (Citizen Scientist).

"My name is Zachary Samoei, a citizen scientist here, who is normally taking these water levels on a daily basis. In case of any catastrophe I’m the first person to be affected. For example, when the water level goes down and down, then I will miss taking water from here, I’ll be in a very big problem. When I was a child, you could even see the level of water going high up to the other side, but during the recent years, the level of water has really decreased drastically."
