The County Government of Uasin Gishu in conjunction with the Mission for Essential Drugs and Supplies (MEDs) on Friday carried out a free medical camp in Cheramei Health Centre, Kamagut ward.
Speaking at the event the Deputy Governor Uasin Gishu County H.E Daniel Chemno called on the residents to frequently visit the county facilities for check-up and treatment.
“Nearly all of our facilities are equipped with the necessary staff and all that it takes for better services to our people “said Chemno.
“We want you to invest by expanding your business around the Jua Kali centre. The program of constructing a truck parking need to find you already settled with enough businesses and rental houses “reiterated the deputy governor.
Chemno further asked them to venture into the cultivation of coffee pointing out the benefits that comes with it.
“Once you settle to go for coffee, we will send you agricultural officers to guide you on how to cultivate and its benefits compared to those of cereals “He noted
The County’s Health Executive Member Margaret Chepkwony said the county is working on completing all facility projects to provide room for installation of equipment.
“The theatre in Turbo sub county hospital is almost complete. This will reduce congestion seen in other hospitals since patients will no longer travel to other hospitals “said Chepkwony
The rising cases of people suffering from cancer and high blood pressure has forced the county government to use all means in advising its residents to regularly and frequently visit its facilities across the county for free check-ups.
Present during the exercise were the area Mca Hon Jeremiah Sang, Mission for Essential Drugs and Supplies managing director Mr Paschal Manyuru, the county’s CECM Water, Energy and Natural Resources Mary Njogu, health chief officer Mr Wilson Kemei and Turbo sub county administrator Wilson Sawe.
