National Government brings services to doorsteps of the people of Kabete sub-county

Residents of Kabete sub-county in Kiambu County will no longer traverse to Kikuyu sub-county in search of services being offered by the National Government.
The people will now enjoy all the services from close proximity following the completion of a 30 million shillings magnificent office block which has already been occupied by the relevant departments.
The project was fully funded by the National Treasury in the 2018/2019 financial year.
Kabete Deputy County Commissioner (DCC) Lameck Namayi while talking to KNA Friday from the new office revealed that construction works had taken a record one year to be completed after the foundation stone was laid by Kiambu County Commissioner Wilson Wanyanga on March 6, 2019. It was completed by April 2, 2020.
The Deputy county commissioner noted that the presence of the office in the sub-county would enhance service delivery for the people as the core mandate of Government was to give service to the people at proximity
Mr.Namai mentioned that the departments that have been accommodated in the new block were Labour and social services, children, education, registration of persons and the Critical Infrastructure Protection Unit(CIPU) which are under the ministry of interior and National Government.
Previously before the completion of the structure, people were traversing all the way to Kikuyu to be attended which was expensive and time wasting
“All these important services shall be offered to the people from this one-stop building without making them walk around for the same,” said Mr Namayi.
Further, the DCC observed that the level of investment in Kabete was going to improve following the security which has greatly improved.
He said investors were now going to flock in the area following the construction on the Western by-pass which had traversed Kabete sub-county.
After devolution in 2013, residents in Kabete continued to be served from Kikuyu sub-county the same way as those from Kiambaa continued to be served from Kiambu sub-county.
Therefore, the National Government has been credited for bringing services closer to the people in the spirit of the constitution so as to be able to reach out to the people and make them participate in governance.
Margaret Waweru who had sought services from the department of social services told KNA that people of Kabete were happy with the development that the government was putting in place.
“Now we can say we have a government because we see it cares for us and wants us to spend the shortest time seeking assistance from the offices here.”
Caroline Mwaura similarly thanked the government for the modern project in the area saying it had totally changed the face of Kabete in line with developing suburbs of Nairobi City County.
