Governor to occupy county offices

13 February 2013, 17:52 Ngarae Elias

Senior government officers in Laikipia are engaging in a last-minute rush to establish an office for the County Governor ahead of the March 4 General Election.

Employees of the Nanyuki town hall and Laikipia county council have already been instructed to vacate their offices to pave way for the governor and his staff.

The municipal employees have been directed to shift their operations to Town Hall Annex, about one and a half kilometres away, to give room for renovations of the main town hall to accommodate the governor and the county treasury.

“We are moving fast because we have a very short time to create some space for the governor. We are not leaving anything to chance since the governor must have an office by March 5,” Laikipia East district commissioner Abdikadir Mohammed said.

The governor’s office will be located at the town hall while the county assembly will be at the county council chambers located a few metres away.

Mohammed said an alternative office was being sought for the county council workers who were moving to create room for county assembly.

There was a high likelihood that they would rent private premises nearby, the DC stated.

The issue of where the county government headquarters should be located has in the past caused divisions among Laikipia leaders and residents.

The western side of the county prefer the headquarters to be located at Rumuruti which is 80 kilometres from Nanyuki while their Eastern counterparts prefer Nanyuki town since it has the infrastructure and facilities to accommodate the governor.

A committee that brought together officers from the five districts in the county had in 2011 proposed that the headquarters be set up at Mutara market since it is in the capital of the county.
