Year in year out, Jane Anyango Adika aka ‘Mama Serikali’ has been a recurring eye witness reporter every time River Nyando bursts its banks. As a result, she has become a popular public figure whose cry for government’s help has often gone unanswered.
Ahead of expected heavy rains later this month, the mother of six has received the necessary assurance that plans for a permanent solution are underway.
On Tuesday, Jane welcomed a government delegation led by Water and Irrigation Cabinet Secretary, Eugene Wamalwa, into her home. Speaking during the visit, Wamalwa assured Jane and area residents that plans were underway to build two dams in the Nyando River Basin.
Jane was left an elated lady as she expressed her gratitude that ‘serikali’ had finally heeded to her cry.

Happy ending for Jane and quite a blessed and memorable 2015 she’s had after landing a lucrative deal with Safaricom’s Stori Ibamabe campaign.
