His Excellency Governor Francis Kimemia officially launches the County Government headquarters construction project in Ol’Kalou.
This Financial Year, KShs. 30 million has been allocated by the County Government, up from last Financial Year’s KShs. 25 million.
KShs. 50 million has also been allocated by the National Government, compared to KShs. 121 million given in the last Financial Year.
Vowing to keep track of the cash flow, Governor Kimemia also pledged to continue with related County Government programs to transform Ol’Kalou and other major urban centers in Nyandarua into world-class towns.
Assuring the contractor of non-interference from his administration, the Governor thanked His Excellency President Uhuru Kenyatta for his unwavering support towards the project, which had stalled.
He appealed to the Head of State to revive all stalled National Government projects in Nyandarua, including the Gilgil-Ol’Kalou-Nyahururu metre gauge railway line.
Reminding workers at the site of the first COVID-19 positive case reported in Nyandarua yesterday, the Governor urged the contractor to remain vigilant and strictly continue observing directives provided by the Ministry of Health.
Governor Kimemia also drummed up support for the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI), noting that the “One man, One Vote, One Shilling” principle will ensure equity in distribution of resources from the National Government.
Calling for politics of development, the County head further noted that Nyandarua has achieved much more in the last two years than during the entire tenure of the previous administration.
In attendance was Architect Lee Waititu, who led a technical team from the State Department of Public Works, among other senior National and County Government officials.
