...The publication of the first report on shadow credit rating is a giant step in the water services subsector in Kenya. It comes at a critical time when there is increased demand for water services which largely outstrips the service provision capacity of water utilities in the country. The rapidly growing population has exerted pressure on the aging water and sanitation infrastructure, some dating back as far as before Independence. Though significant funding has come into the sector, it has proved insufficient to meet both the rehabilitation and expansion requirements of water services infrastructure. Natural population growth coupled with increased urbanization has exerted more pressure on urban water service providers (WSPs) which have to cope with increased densities and the rapid expansion and demand for services in towns.
