Laikipia Governor vows to boost agriculture

17 April 2013, 16:37 James Kabotia

Governor Joshua Irungu has promised to unlock the agricultural potential for Laikipia County by improving all the road networks to make them accessible to the farmers.

Irungu has also pledged to curb human-wildlife conflict which has been a menace to agriculture in the county.

“I have called for a meeting scheduled to be on Friday that will involve the area wildlife managers, security agents and the community to decide on how we are going to wipe away human-wildlife conflict in Laikipia,” said Irungu.

The Governor was speaking during the Agricultural Society of Kenya stakeholders’ breakfast forum at Sportsmans Arms Hotel in Nanyuki.  

He also said that he will soon organize a trip to Israel for some farmers in Laikipia so that they can conduct a thorough research on farming technology.

The forum which was also graced by Laikipia County Assembly speaker Peter Mariru and County Commissioner Wycliffe Ogallo was aimed at discussing ideas and suggestions on how to make the forthcoming Nanyuki agricultural show more successful.

According to ASK Deputy National chairman Joseph Gachagua, the society will soon make the county governors to be patrons of the 15 ASK shows in Kenya.

“Here at the Mt Kenya branch show in Nanyuki, Governor Joshua Irungu will be the patron while his Samburu counterpart will be his deputy,”said Gachagua.

Irungu promised to support and grace the opening of the show which will be held on May 16 to 18.

“During the 2013-2014 budget for my county Government, I will include the ASK so that we can boost our farming,” continued the Governor.
