Trans Nzoia begins mapping of public facilities

Trans Nzoia County has started mapping of public facilities among them hospitals, schools and government administrative offices in the area.
During a meeting at his office with the Presidential Delivery Unit (PDU) technical team today , Trans Nzoia County Commissioner Samson Ojwang stated that the move was to enable the government capture and analyse geographical data of public facilities within the county.
The purpose according to the CC is to plan better for the people and improve on service delivery.
“The government aims at promoting the health, safety and prosperity of its people,” he said.
Head of the PDU technical team, Tiberius Orechi said that the government was targeting public facilities that have not been captured geographically for the benefit of the citizens.
“Capturing the data of these public facilities will enhance development planning, equitable sharing of resources as well as communication and public relations,” he said.
He added that the one-week exercise will be cascaded down to location so as to improve decisions during the different stages of the development planning process in the near future.
