Laikipia - County governor Joshua Irungu has restructured his government by creating a new ministry of water contrary to what has been a rumour that he will fire some of his underperforming cabinet members.
Speaking in Nyahururu town yesterday, Irungu said water has been given prominence to ensure people had access to the commodity both for domestic, livestock and for irrigation.
“Restructuring of my government was necessary to meet the needs of the people and particularly in water provision,” Irungu said.
The governor added that the residents would benefit from harvesting water from shallow wells, a programme that will be sponsored by the US government.
He further said that his cabinet will soon sign performance contracts to ensure that his campaign pledges to the electorate are realized.
Governor Irungu emphasized on the importance of education to build a human resource capacity for the county’s sustainable development.
He noted that illiteracy is a major ingredient that fuels insecurity in many parts of the country adding that it is an uphill task to lure elites into criminal activities.
Speaking at the same time, Laikipia University Vice Chancellor Pro Francis Lelo urged parents to take full responsibility of their children enrolled in institutions of higher learning.
Prof. Lelo said that the universities have no control of students admitted and parents should guide and counsel them as there is personal freedom in the institutions.
