The development wave swung the County Government of Uasin Gishu’s agenda to Moiben Ward in Moiben Sub-County where H.E Governor Jackson Mandago launched projects.
The County chief spent the day in the Ward, kickstarting water projects, commissioning health facilities and meeting the people.
The Ward is among areas without adequate number of dams. The people of Torochmoi and Toloita villages got a boreholes.
The Governor was on site, helping with the drilling as residents, who were bidding bye to water scarcity, looked on.
The borehole will supply water to three villages, using solar power and piping down through gravity. Schools,hospitals and households will benefit.
“I was in a visit to another county just last week. I took a moment to compare that place with Uasin Gishu and I just got amazed,” a resident said during the commissioning of Torochmoi Dispensary.
The Torochmoi Dispensary is a facility that boasts a functioning maternity and a doctor in charge. Residents of Moiben and Sergoit Wards will be served by the amenity.
The Governor later attended the burial of Mr John Murkomen Suter, father to Mr Edwin Suter, the Uasin Gishu Chief Officer for ICT and e-government.
Here, the Governor asked the people to elect leaders based on their performance track and the need for him to get back to office in order to finish up a few more projects.
Governor Mandago also repeated the same sentiments during a public baraza at Toloita Primary School Grounds.
