No water in Nairobi? Does everyone else have this?

Hi - we moved into our new home in Kilimani 2 months ago and have the worst water issues ever.

We live in a self contained compound and have been told that unless you live in apartments you will have water problems because all the water from the council is diverted to apartments. Is this for real?

We just can't afford to pay for our tanks to be filled every week on top of the house bills and water bills from the council (who's water doesn't even last 2 days).

I just want to know if its us that being screwed by the council or does everyone else in self contained houses have the same problem?

Unfortunately apartments won't accept dogs so thats not an option... this is crazy.

Any suggestions?
