Nyandarua Governor H.E. Daniel Waithaka Mwangi has commissioned new floodlight for Njabini town.
The Governor switched on the lights on Monday night during a ceremony witnessed by hundreds of people and leaders from across the county.
Those in attendance included area MCA Hon. Kiiru Gachomba, his counterpart in Gathara Ward Hon. Daniel Kibebo, County Ministers Hon. Charles Chiuri (Roads and Public Works), Hon. George Kimani (Attorney and ICT), Hon. Nderi Ndiani (Finance) and newly appointed Ministers, Hon. Peter Gathimba (Tourism and Sports) and Hon. Gitau Thabanja.
Also in the meeting were chief officers and directors drawn from various departments.
Addressing the huge gathering, the Governor said his administration will continue to serve all residents of the county without discrimination, adding that two more floodlights will soon be erected in the town.
“I will devote all my energy to ensure that farmers benefit from their sweat,” he said adding he would ensure the new law on potato packaging was enforced for the benefit of all stakeholders.
The Governor said he would ensure all feeder roads were graded to enhance transport for agricultural produce adding that he was working closely with Nakuru County government to enhance water supply in all homes across the region.
He promised residents that his administration would open up the Njabini-Kiburu Road to link residents of Kinangop with their counterparts in Muranga County.
“I want to see you trading in bananas and arrow roots from Muranga while they buy potatoes, carrots and other horticultural products from Nyandarua,” the Governor said.
The Governor said he was not bothered by politicians who were spreading lies about his administration, saying their agenda was to distract his attention from serving the people.
County Assembly Speaker Hon. Wahome Ndegwa who spoke during the ceremony accused certain politicians of spreading “malicious campaign” to the effect that the Governor had sidelined the region.
He paraded top public servants and Ministers from the region including Hon. Kimani and Hon. Gathimba and told residents the Governor had favoured the region in public appointments.
“You all can see that most people surrounding the Governor are from this region, including his personal assistant. Those spreading rumours that you have been sidelined are simply out to cause division between the people of Nyandarua in order to achieve narrow political interests,” said the Speaker.
Wahome told residents of Kinangop to ignore “noisemakers” and support the county government in order to achieve development targets.
He said the Governor had recently issued an executive order allocating Sh30million out of the Sh50 million for emergency funds, to be used for construction of Njabini-Kiburu Road that links Kinangop region with Muranga County.
