STATEMENT ON MY MEETING WITH THE PRESIDENT-ELECT, HIS EXCELLENCY (DR.) WILLIAM S. RUTO, RELEASED IN OL’KALOU ON SEPTEMBER 6TH, 2022
I today led the entire Nyandarua County leadership in successful meetings with the President-Elect His Excellency (Dr.) William S. Ruto and Deputy President-Elect, His Excellency Rigathi Gachagua.
Challenges affecting our County, and which formed part of the conversation during the grassroots Economic Forum prior to the August 2022 General Election, were discussed and a framework for their implementation agreed upon. Other issues discussed included:
1. The President-Elect spearheading annual economic fora geared towards leapfrogging Nyandarua into a model prosperous County;
2. Establishing a collaborative development framework between my administration and the National Government to continually identify key sectors for support and interventions;
3. The National Government ensuring that the outstanding 25 milk coolers are delivered; and
4. The President-Elect ensuring that the promised mega dams – Pesi, Kinja and Malewa – are funded to completion. He indicated that he has already instructed our National Treasury to put in motion all necessary processes to actualize this.
In addition, the meeting resolved to ensure that there is consultative leadership between both arms of the County Government, with each discharging its mandate for the full benefit of our people. I assured the President-Elect and his deputy of my commitment to offer the required leadership, which brings all leaders together and permanently ends the sad chapter of infighting that had defined our County. I have already proposed to have a Nyandarua Leaders’ Forum as part of my governance mechanism.
The President-Elect appreciated the role played by every leader present towards bringing the transformative change the people of Nyandarua, and Kenya in general, desired. These sentiments were equally shared by the Deputy President-Elect, who had earlier hosted us for a breakfast meeting.
I thank my deputy, Hon. Mathara Mwangi; County Woman Representative, Hon. Faith Gitau; Senator, Hon. John Methu; Hon. David Kiaraho (Ol’Kalou); Hon. Kwenya Thuku (Kinangop); Hon. George Gachagua (Ndaragwa); Hon. Michael Muchira (Ol’Jororok); Hon. Wanjiku Muhia (Kipipiri) and all Members of the County Assembly of Nyandarua for joining me during the interaction.
God bless Nyandarua, and God bless Kenya!
HIS EXCELLENCY GOVERNOR (DR.) MOSES N. BADILISHA KIARIE
