Nakuru governor: I will fight corruption

19 April 2013, 12:17 Steve Wambugu

Nakuru county governor Kinuthia Mbugua said the fight against corruption will be his priority.

Speaking in Nakuru on Thursday during the opening of Nakuru county assembly, Kinuthia said that it is regrettable that corrution has dragged development in the county for long and the country at large hence the need to have concerted efforts  towards fighting the same.

He said that during his tenure, all corrupt officials will be dealt with accordingly adding that all the members of the county assembly should from now hence forth inculcate a culture of fighting corruption.

He said that his government will strive to create an enabling environment for private investors and at the same time called on county representatives to create viable legislation.

While reiterating his commitment towards creating employment for the youth, Kinuthia said that the Nakuru county government will prioritize formulation of by laws that will create a one license system whose absence has cost the business fraternity.

He noted that the juakali and the small and micro enterprise sector was facing major challenges ranging from poor market access to lack of credit, thus the need to create an enabling environment for poverty reduction.

The governor observed that there was dire need to address major issues facing the tourism, health, education and agricultural sectors adding that the relevant committees should liaise with neighbouring counties to find lasting solutions to these challenges.

He said that adequate measures will be taken to ensure there is sufficient water supply to the residents of Nakuru county, first by protecting the environment and water catchments areas.

The speaker of the county government of Nakuru Susan Kihika said that it will be the priority of his office to ensure all county representatives have offices which will enable them serve the public effectively.

Kinuthia’s speech was welcomed by most of the county representatives who expressed optimism that improvement of agricultural infrastructure will boost food production in the area.

Others who attended the sitting were Nakuru county senator James Mungai and URP nominated senator Lizza Chelule.
