The perennial clean water shortage in Kenya calls not only for the review of the country’s review of its policies on the ecosystem and water towers, but also for the re-examination of the sanitation theories and practice of the country’s hospitality industry. The Hospitality industry has a role to play to maintain standards and at the same time influence the country’s policies with a view to safeguard the ecosystem and water towers.
The requirement for hygiene and sanitation is core to any hospitality industry world over. Any lapses in the theory and practice will always witness hundreds of thousands of people suffer from food poisoning, water borne infections and other health threats to both staff and guests at the hospitality industries.
This paper examines the space of hygiene and sanitation theory and practices in Kenya’s hospitality industry and the larger national water shortage challenges, such as the impacts of tribal politics on the water towers.
