Nakuru slum estates to get street lights

05 November 2013, 11:39 Wilshere

Nakuru - Nakuru County governor, Kinuthia Mbugua, has said his government will be installing street lights in all slum areas in Nakuru town before the end of the year.

Kinuthia said that his government has set aside a substantial amount of money to repair all broken street lights in the town.

“My government will make sure all streets in this town have streets lights to curb cases of insecurity,” he said.

Speaking on Monday after touring Flamingo, Kivumbini and Kimathi estates in Nakuru town, the governor said that officers from the council will also be conducting maintenance work in all county council houses in the town.

He said that house rent of all council houses will not be increased after the houses have been repaired by the County government.

“We are not in any way trying to increase the house rent of these houses because all we want is to improve the living standards of all the residents of Nakuru,” he said.

He also reiterated that his County government will put measures in place to waive all rental arrears in the County council houses.

He challenged the residents to maintain the street lights and houses once they are repaired.

“I am going to form a committee which will be headed by your local leaders to look into the outstanding arrears because we want to waive them,” said.

Kinuthia also said that Nakuru County Members of Assembly will be travelling to other countries in the world to gain knowledge of how to run sub-Counties.

He said that there is need for MCAs to learn new ideas on how to manage the wards in Nakuru County.
