Tour of development projects in Kiambu postponed

A tour by the Kiambu County Development Implementation Coordination Committee (CDICC) which was scheduled for tomorrow has been postponed until further notice.

The postponement was contained in a letter signed by Kiambu County Commissioner (CC), Wilson  Wanyanga and copied to all line departments.

In  the letter dated 1st April, 2019, the administrator said the tour had been postponed owing to unavoidable circumstances until further notice.

The  CDICC was scheduled to tour 2 projects namely the Ndula Magogoni in Thika and Komo Irrigation project in Juja sub-county on their second tour of projects within Kiambu County.

The team was constituted by Executive order No.1 of 2019 and assigned duties of assessing and reporting on projects within their jurisdiction for purposes of follow-up so that relevant authorities could work round the clock to upscale those that had stalled for some reasons.

The  Membership of the CDICC is chaired by the  CC  while other members include the county intelligence and county information officers. A director from the Presidential Delivery unit is also a member and is the secretary to the committee.

During the first tour, the team visited 5 Tigoni water projects and Ruiru waste water plant where it is treated and released into the river Ruiru for purposes of irrigation.

Meetings for the CDICC are held fortnightly while supervisory tours are also held fortnightly with an aim of updating all development projects within the county. There is no delegation of responsibilities and officers assigned the duty have to attend in person.

During the initial tour, the chairman said they were meant to highlight all development projects and the current status including the financial implications touching on them for prudent management and update by the relevant office.

He added that the feeling of the public who are beneficiaries of the projects has to be captured so that they are made to own the projects in their vicinity.
