Nyandarua’s path towards development for the next five years has been fully mapped out, His Excellency Governor Francis Kimemia has said.
Speaking when he unveiled the second County Integrated Development Plan (2018-2022) in Ol’Kalou today, Governor Kimemia said his sights are firmly set on His Excellency President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Big Four agenda of food security,providing affordable housing,affordable health services and manufacturing as the basis for Nyandarua’s transformation.
“Our vision is to be a productive, prosperous, secure and newly-industrialized County that adds value to its citizens and competes effectively in the 21st century,” he said.
The Governor said his focus is to change Nyandarua’s status from the least-developed and poorest County per capita in the former Central Province.
CIDP II is based on, among other significant instruments, Governor Kimemia’s manifesto,whose key pillars are Good Governance(Peace,Security,Democracy,and Ruleoflaw); Social Sector Development (Education, Health, Culture, Rights, Social Dimension and Services); and Infrastructure Development (Water, Irrigation, Sewerage, Energy, Transport and Communication, ICT,Sports,Tourism,and Environment).
The others are Financial and Trade Services and Entrepreneurship Development; Agriculture Development, Environmental Conservation; Investments and Industrialization.
The Governor hailed County residents for being fully engaged in matters that affect their destiny in line with the Constitution.
“Together, we have been able to develop our CIDP2, which flows from feedback received through rigorous public participation,” he said.
