Rift Valley Water Services Board
Public Notice
Application for Appointment of Directors for Nakuru Rural Water and Sanitation Company

The Rift Valley Water Services Board (RVWSB) is licensed by the Water Services Regulatory Board (WASREB) to provide efficient and economical water services within its area of jurisdiction in accordance with Water Act 2002.

However, the Act requires that the Board provides these services through agents known as Water Service Providers (WSPs). 

In this regard, the Board appointed Nakuru Rural Water and Sanitation Company to provide water services within Nakuru County except Nakuru and Naivasha towns.
According to the Constitution of Kenya, 2010, the provision of water services is a function of the County Governments. 

During this period of the transition process to devolution, the water sector corporate guidelines standards must continue to be incorporated in the constitutions of all water service providers.
The WSPs are managed by Board of Directors whose primary function is oversight – overseeing the conduct of the Company’s business so that it is effectively managed in the long-term interest of shareholders and stakeholders.

The day to day management of the WSPs is carried out by a management team headed by a Managing Director.
In this respect, therefore, Nakuru Rural Water and Sanitation Company intends to fill seven (7) vacant positions in the Board.
