Kwale County Governor, Salim Mvurya, has pledged to work closely with the National government to fast track development in the region.
Mvurya said it’s imperative that the 47 County Governors foster good working relationships with the National government for the general wellbeing of the Country and her people, noting that Kenyans were only interested in development and not politics of supremacy.
Mvurya said due to the close collaboration between his Administration and President Uhuru Kenyatta’s government, Kwale County had greatly benefited through major impact projects such as the Samburu-Kinango-Kwale Tarmac Road that is due for completion, the Kanana-Shimoni and Lungalunga-Vanga Roads, the upcoming Blue Economy Marine Institute at Kombani among many other projects.
The two-term Governor said he was happy that Kwale County is on course in delivering his re-election campaign pledges as major flagship projects are nearing completion before exiting the Office in 2022.
“We have benefited a lot from President Uhuru’s government and I thank him. We will work more closely so that Kwale residents benefit even more,” declared Mvurya.
He added, “Our close working relation with President Uhuru Kenyatta and his government has contributed immensely to the development of major flagship projects in our County”.
The County Boss was speaking in Kinango Sub County during the official opening of Mavirivirini Police Station.
The project was recently revived through a joint effort between the two levels of government, after stalling for 15 years.
Mvurya who was in the company of Kinango Member of Parliament (MP), Benjamin Tayari, among other leaders underscored the importance of peace and security if meaningful development is to be achieved.
“I call upon every citizen to cooperate with these Police Officers posted here to boost security in this area which in turn will help us realize faster development,” he said, adding that the new police station will beef up security and foster development in the locality.
The Governor appealed to the National government to install electricity and send a vehicle for the station as well as to the neighbouring Vigirungani Police Station to enhance efficiency.
He also announced that both County and National government are constructing a new Police Station at Samburu area along the Mombasa-Nairobi Highway to better serve the needs of the community as well as motorists plying the busy route.
“I want to reiterate my support and commit to continue working closely with the National government to ensure that the police station is installed with electricity as well as the police equipped with Vehicles so that they can offer their services with ease and efficiently,” he said.
The MP and other leaders present called for unity among the citizenry and pledged to unite themselves.
On politics, the Governor urged residents to ignore those seeking leadership positions on the back of tribalism, nepotism and divisive agendas and propaganda.
