Nyeri chiefs receive motorcycles

13 November 2012, 14:16Joseph Wambugu

Sixteen chiefs from Nyeri county have received motorcycles which were flagged off by Central PC Kiplimo Rugut.

The motorcycles are meant to improve service delivery in the region.

They were bought by the Government and then donated to the chiefs.

“The motorcycles will help in rapid response so that the administrators can arrive on time. They will also help in patrol. This will easier communication,” said the PC.

Kiplimo however warned them of misusing the motorbikes and urged the chiefs to use them only on official duties.

Central Kenya was initially given 76 motorcycles to share among the eight counties, with Nyeri County receiving 16 of them.

The chiefs were advised to learn riding skills for their own safety.

“This is the first bunch of motorcycles to arrive in the region. Others are expected next year. They will be of much help unto them,” he explained.

Meanwhile, Rugut assured the chiefs that they will not be sacked from their jobs, adding that plans are in place to improve their work.

“The constitution never states that they will be sacked but restructured in five years. Their work is still there,” he added.

Those present during the function were all DC’s from the county, Nyeri county commissioner Michael Mwangi and Nyeri County council chairman Wachira Maina.
