After launch of projects in Megun and Barsombe Wards on Tuesday and Wednesday, H.E Governor Jackson Mandago was in Kamagut for the entire Thursday.
Milk coolers and Early Child Development Education (ECDE) centres captioned the diary as public barazas wrapped up the busy day.
Elders play a crucial role,offering ideas and wisdom-the recipes of an informed and exemplary leadership.
First, H.E The Governor started off the day with blessings from community leaders and elders during a meeting in Kamagut.
The projects and developments in all the sectors are out there to see. No one disputes it, an elder said.
The Governor-a man who firmly believes in education- then inspected the Emgwen ECDE and thereater launched a completed unit at Ainopng’etik Primary School.
H.E Mandago then inspected the construction progress of Sambut Cooperative Milk Cooler plant. Here, he reiterated the County’s deliberate plans to increase milk production.
The County Government of Uasin Gishu has literally reduced costs incurred in dairy production, by half!
The price of dipping has significantly come down to as low as Ksh 10 from Ksh 30 following establishment of more dips and free supply of acaricide for the rest of the year.
Each of the 30 wards are planned to have a milk cooler, which will help farmers store their milk as they hunt for the highest bidder.
Already, several cooperatives have been helped to acquire coolers as other sites are under construction.
Also, sexed semen seeds have been subsidized, with farmers now getting the 100percent heifer seed for Ksh 2500 down from Ksh 6000. The other seed that initially went for Ksh 4000 and Ksh 2000 are now Ksh 2000 and Ksh 700.
