Water Hyacinth Harvester Procured from Italy Sitting Idle Amid Problems and Missing Parts
The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission is investigating the procurement of a Sh76 million water hyacinth harvester.

The machine, procured by Lake Victoria Environment Management Project and funded by the national government and the World Bank, stalled immediately it was bought.

It was bought from Italy in 2016 after it was established that the weed can be mechanically removed from the lake. Technicians cite missing components and mechanical problems for its state of affairs.

The equipment has been idle for three years at the Kisumu inland port as the invasive weed it was meant to harvest continues to choke the largest fresh water lake in Africa.Some Sh2.3 million is needed to buy missing hooks.

Chelan County PUD Combats Eurasian Milfoil - Every summer, two Chelan County PUD park maintenance workers use an Aquarius Systems weed harvester to cut and remove tons of Eurasian milfoil from parks and boat launches along the Columbia River. Without the PUD’s harvesting program, boat launches and swimming areas would be choked with weeds. This HM-420 harvester was built more than 15 years ago. It still looks great.
