We will deliver, County Commissioner

Nyandarua County Commissioner Benson Leparmorijo has assured residents that the government was committed to ensuring developmental projects in the county were completed on time.
Leparmorijo said that national government projects were on course, with the president keen to ensure he leaves a legacy in the region.
Citing Mau Mau road that traversed Nyandarua, Nyeri, Kiambu and Muranga counties that will commence soon, the Commissioner said an Environmental and Social Impact Assessment is underway.
“We have formed a complaints committee headed by Kinangop Deputy County Commissioner Mr. Kalume Nzovu to handle any issues arising ahead of the construction to be rolled out soon,” said the Commissioner.
Naivasha-Njambini road, he said, was also on course costing the national government Sh1.8billion. The contractor is on site.
“Several Irrigation projects under the Nyandarua cluster programme are also underway to a tune of Sh184 million. We urge you to ensure they are done to standards and as per the contractual terms,” added the CC.
He spoke in Kinangop on Sunday during the launch of Constitution of Kenya Amendment Bill, signature collection, where he urged the resident to back the government in its developmental agenda and endorse the BBI document.
Also at the event, Ndaragwa MP Jeremiah Kioni, called on the President to personally monitor the progress of government projects in the county to ensure timely delivery saying the county had been marginalized.
“Nyandarua covers a third of central region yet we only receive less than 15 percent of what the country allocates the region,” he remarked.
Governor Francis Kimemia said that a Regional Development Authority, just like the Lake Region’s and Coastal Regional Development Authorities was a necessity to ensure even development.
