Joy As Governor Commissions Work Programme For Leased Equipment

Kiamariga, Laikipia, 6th November 2019 HE Governor Ndiritu Muriithi has commissioned the work programme for the leased equipment.
The project targets to upgrade at least 30 kilometers in each of the countys 15 wards in the first phase. The subsequent phases target to upgrade over 3000 kilometers of the road network already classified to be under the management of the county government. They include existing and unpaved roads.
Citizens and members of the county assembly praised the leasing programme saying it will ensure continuous improvement of roads in rural areas. Road improvement projects will not be stopped by equipment breakdown since the equipment dealers are in charge of the maintenance, and replacements will be prompt to facilitate uninterrupted flow of work.

Leasing program took a bit longer to materialize, but we are glad the Governor has finally succeeded. The leasing program a major milestone as it will open up Laikipia within a short time, Salama MCA Wilson Wakahiu said.
HE the Governor challenged residents to take advantage of the government infrastructure upgrade to engage in life changing socio-economic activities, as that is the only way the project can achieve the intended impact.
The government can only facilitate and you need to take personal steps towards making your lives better, the governor said, urging the residents to tap into government support such as the County Enterprise Fund and the Innovation and Funding Support to venture into entrepreneurship activities such value addition in agriculture to maximize profits.
