Kirinyaga - Kirinyaga residents have been asked to inherit fish eating culture in order to remain healthy and energetic.
Governor Joseph Ndathi said by inheriting the new lifestyle in the County, more job opportunities will be created in agriculture and trade sectors.
“Fish is known for preventing a long list of diseases because of its healthy minerals,” he pointed out.
Speaking at County headquarters in Kutus town while launching the 'Eat More Fish' campaign, the Governor said Kirinyaga has the potential to produce fish that can sustain local markets due to the plenty of water that flows from the mountains.

He was accompanied by a section of County executive committee members.
