NDARAGWA RESIDENTS BENEFIT FROM A 9B WATER PROJECT.
Nyandarua Governor H.E. Daniel Waithaka Mwangi yesterday toured Ndaragwa Sub-county where a 16 million cubic metres Water Dam worth 9 billion will be put at Pesi Ndaragwa forest. The mega dam will be an integrated project will which will benefit the county and the nation at large. The dam will be a source of hydro power for electricity, irrigation, fishing, domestic water for consumption and eco-tourism.
Speaking during an open rally at Uruku/Subego shopping centers in central ward Ndaragwa Sub-County, the Governor said the water project will also benefit residents of Laikipia and Nakuru County after it has profited Nyandaruans.
“In the meantime I have instructed the CEC Member for Water, Energy, Environment and Natural resources to construct a bigger intake at the former J.M Dam in Ndaragwa forest and dig as alternative sources of water . The Project is in partnership between Nyandarua County Government and the Central Government.” said the Governor.
Currently the Ministry of Water, Energy, Environment and Natural resources has supplied Ndaragwa Girls with water and its environs and water connectivity is ongoing in parts of Shamata ward.
Later on the Governor instructed the CEC for Education, Children, Youth affairs and Social Services to work on a porridge feeding programme on all ECD Centers in Ndaragwa Sub-County with the help of area Chiefs. This has occurred due to inadequate rainfall in the lower parts of Ndaragwa forcing the parents to take their children to the neighbouring Laikipia County where the same programme is ongoing.
The Governor urged the residents of Ndaragwa and Nyandarua as whole to come out during the public vetting process of bar licensing.
Along with the Governor was CEC Finance and Economic Planning Hon. Nderi Ndiani, CEC Education, Children, Youth affairs and Social Services, CEC Roads Public Works and Transport Hon. Engineer Charles Chiuri, CEC Water, Energy, Environment and Natural resources Hon. Grace W. Gitonga, MCA Central Ward Hon. Mwangi Kagwe, MCA Kiriita Ward Hon. Paul M. Nderitu, MCA Shamata Ward Hon.
