The incoming Nairobi Regional Commissioner (RC) Kang’ethe Thuku has called on all government Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDA’s) to work together as President Uhuru Kenyatta’s legacy projects near completion.
Thuku said that with a few months remaining to the completion of the key projects, proper coordination and cooperation in government will be key in ensuring that the projects are completed and Kenyans reap their benefits.
Speaking at Nyayo house Monday as he took over as the new RC, Thuku said that during his time as Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS) Deputy Director General, he used to receive good reports on the progress of development projects in the capital city.
“Walking around Nairobi one gets to see the transformation around the city and how the quality of life has changed as a result of the deliberate projects which have been undertaken by this government,” said Thuku.
He called on government ministries and officials to coordinate in the implementation of these projects insisting that team work makes work easier.
“It is a privilege for me to work in the capital city once again, as I have been here before in the same capacity. Working in Nairobi should be a motivation to every worker here since there are many people who would like to work in the city but don’t have the privilege,” said Thuku.
The Outgoing Nairobi RC James Kianda said that together with MDA’s and the Presidential Delivery Unit (PDU), they have been able to fast-track the implementation of many government projects and initiatives in the city.
Kianda lauded the team work among government officials in Nairobi, urging for the same support to the incoming RC.
“I have officially handed over to my colleague Thuku and I will be heading to the North Eastern Region in the same capacity. I urge you to accord him the same support you have given me as we strive to make Kenya better for everyone,” said Kianda.
