Kenya - Kisumu Water and Sewerage Company (KIWASCO)

KIWASCO was established through the reforms that took place in the water sector nationally and based on the decision to privatise essential services. The Company was established in July 2003 as an independent company after the transformation of the water and sewerage department of the Kisumu Municipal Council. The core objective of KIWASCO is to make the water and sewerage services provision a commercial activity that generates sufficient revenue to sustain its operations.

The KIWASCO slogan is: “Refresh Life”

The slogan ties in well with the company’s mission statement, or reason for existence. By living this slogan and making it a clarion call within the company, employees will be motivated to concentrate their energies in the same direction and ensure that provision of water – which refreshes life – becomes the focal point of all their actions.
